The first Howjsay was better...it had a hyperlink to a dictionary to see the definition. Wish you would again include. I read a great deal. Whenever I came across a word I didn't recognize, I would 'look it up'...so I have a very large written vocabulary, but found myself vocally changing the perfect adjective for a more common one, since I was not positive as to pronunciation. Now I am. Thank you...your product is very useful. Carol

Finally an app driven by heart and professionalism. Probably the best app for English pronunciation. They have rare words and even past tense of all verbs, so the price justifies their commitment . Highly recommended.

I've had this app for years and even as a native English speaker, I use it a lot to check my pronunciation of difficult to pronounce English words. Well worth it's small purchase price.
