The Pronunciation Tutor provides an innovative way to monitor your own speech production. This app lets you visually compare the difference between your speech and lip/tongue position to that of a native speaker by using the iPhone camera. The app shows your own mouth directly below the native speaker mouth demonstrating the proper pronunciation of a word or phrase.
This approach allows you to see, as well as hear, any differences between your speech and that of the native model. There are a few sounds in the English language that are produced with a specific lip/tongue position, a position that is easy to see. /W/ can be problematic for a number of non-native English speakers and it is a good fit for this kind of visual feedback.
NOTE: The ability to see yourself is available only on devices with a front-facing camera (iPhone 4 or newer, iPad 2 or newer, iPod Touch 4th Generation or newer)
