New feature! eLearning comes to Forvo

September 19, 2016

Those of you who use Forvo regularly know that learning a language gives you the ability not only to communicate better, but also to learn, enjoy and interact with others. Former South African president Nelson Mandela once said, “Without language, one cannot talk to people and understand them; one cannot share their hopes and aspirations, grasp their history, appreciate their poetry, or savour their songs.”

We're offering a whole new experience on Forvo to help you learn languages and better pronunciation. Using recordings from the world's largest online pronunciation guide, we're providing our users with a system to help you learn the most useful words and phrases in the languages available. It's an advanced tool which will help you learn words and their pronunciations efficiently. Maybe you need to learn a second language for work, for travel, or perhaps it's just for fun? Ten minutes a day should be enough to help you learn and improve the language you are studying. The objective of the system is to learn 20 words a day. Let yourself be led by our algorithm which will select the words for you to learn each day based on your learning patterns.


It's as simple as choosing the courses that interest you in order to improve your vocabulary. You'll be able to hear how the word is pronounced, as well as the meaning of the word and how it can be used in a phrase, where available. You need to be registered on Forvo to start a course. The tool will do the rest for you and the entire process is very simple and straightforward.
