To improve your Esperanto pronunciation

Practice and check your own pronunciation.

Professor Emilio Cid, instructor
from Brazil, prepared a program called
  "Pronunciation Laboratory" ...
But this page is written in Portuguese.
Download the program straight from here:
and install it in your computer.

The instructions are also in Portuguese ... But you don't need them. On the first window, lower right, select a lesson (1 - 5)

To start, press the green little triangle on the left side of the next window. You will hear the Esperanto sentence written on the middle of the window. Then you will have a chance to repeat into your microphone what you just heard. The program will repeat first the voice of the instructor, and then your own voice, so you can compare.

There are 3 icons on the right side:
Microphone: it will repeat the process with the same sentence.
Headset: you will hear the sentence again.
Arrow: it will repeat the process with a new sentence.

On the first window, at the lower left there is an icon to show instructions in Portuguese.

Instructions in Spanish are in this page.

To exit the program, wait for the program to stop and click the upper right "x". Clicking it when the program is trying to repeat or to record, will produce an exit with error.
