Groundbreaking programs like Rosetta Stone allowed millions to memorize new languages more rapidly and more effectively than ever before. But what happens when you’ve got the vocabulary and memorization down-pat, but can’t quite get the pronunciation?
This very dilemma causes endless frustration for countless language learners across the world.
You can perfect your accent by listening to the audio loops as many times as needed, and measure the time you commit toward doing so.
For those trying to learn Italian, Spanish, Japanese, French or dozens of other languages requiring significant Je ne sais quoi to learn properly, this app is a must. And if you didn’t catch that foreign phrase, then this app is especially imperative!
As long as your audio file is in Mp3, Wav or AAC file format, you can upload it to your iPhone or iPad in order to use it on the app. Since the audio files themselves are organic and coming from your end, you can use any language you like.
This makes the app internationally accessible, as opposed to a comparable app that teaches a specific language.
The app itself is easy to navigate and boasts an extremely pleasing interface. This is a notable improvement from an earlier version of the app, and definitely deserves some accolades.
This interface is clear, boasting a white template with bold blues and shock-greens making the app clear and easy to interact with.
Concept and Functionality:
This is a wonderful concept that many people will love to take on the go. For those that use an iPhone or iPad abroad, this handy app will let you perfect your language acquisition skills and continuously replay the word or phrases that may be giving you the most trouble.
A new version of this app just rolled out on August 2nd, and the continuously improved functionality and interface of this app are both testaments to the developer’s commitment toward improving Utterize.
The app isn’t free, and it isn’t even cheap. At $5.99, this is one of the most expensive apps you’ll probably acquire in the near future. However, because there is an “Utterize Lite” version, buyers of this app should already be sold on the functionality.
Additionally, you could save hundreds by avoiding Rosetta Stone and personal tutors, so the cost could be outweighed pretty quickly with this one.
All in all, Utterize is a winner and a companion when it comes to your International state of mind.
Utterize requires iOS 7.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
