ESL resources for English Pronunciation

Without failure, there is no success.

Pronunciation is the way a word or a language is spoken. English pronunciation is one of the most difficult and important skills to acquire. It is key to speaking English and being understood.

Try to imitate native speakers when you talk and chat with them as much as you can. Do not get discouraged, and do not be afraid of making mistakes. Always remember, “you cannot make an omelette without breaking eggs.” In other words, we cannot achieve anything important in life without sacrifice and failure -you need failure to succeed!

They can be used from the console in GNU/Linux. Just follow these simple instructions: 1. Install the packages festival and espeak: _sudo apt-get install espeak festival. 2. Type one of these commands into the console: espeak “How are you?”; echo “How are you?” | festival ‐‐tts; or echo “How are you?” | espeak.

If you prefer a female voice, then the order is: echo “How are you?” | espeak -ven+14 (-v sets a Voice for the speech).

Last, but not least, espeak –f myFile.txt reads what is written in the file myFile.txt.

However, it is not free. Quite the contrary, it is very pricey.
