Hooked on phonics didn’t work for me.

Have you ever wondered how to pronounce a word? Or even more embarrassing, thought you knew how to say a word only to be corrected after saying it wrong? Well Forvo.com is a great site that should put an end to that. It has an excellent system for recording pronunciations from its members and posting them on an easy to navigate site. On the site there is a way to rank the recordings to evaluate and encourage proper pronunciations. This site provides a slight advantage over a similar feature on Dictionary.com in that it is more social connected (seems to be a trend recently), has friendlier non-robotic voices, AND names or anything you can type available for pronunciation.
