Meadville Public Library is proud to announce our newest resource: Pronunciator!

You can learn 80 languages and choose which of 50 languages you want to learn from.  It’s as simple as telling Pronunciator what language you speak and what language you’d like to learn.  You can learn French if you’re a native Spanish speaker.  Or brush up on your English.

Registering is easy.  Fill in an optional email address and your library card number and you’re ready to go.  Learn on your computer browser or download an app for iPad, iPod, iPhone, or Android tablet or phones.  Learn through the postcards. Practice your new language with drills. Test yourself with the quizzes provided.
