Are you studying a language or simply interested in the pronunciation of some words? Select your 'target language' in the drop-down list, right above, enter your search term in the text-box and search! Simply hit the 'Enter' key if you're typing or click the 'Search and listen' link. You'll get multiple results at once: the pronunciations on the right, images and pictures on the left and some videos below. So you can easily understand what the word is about, what it looks like, see photos of people by their name, or information about a location, a city, products or whatever else. In the pronunciation box you'll see a play button to listen to the audioclip recorded by real people (not speech synthesis! they're Forvo users, male or female, from anywhere in the globe), the language of that word and the country of the user.
Plus you can view images related to the word or name you're searching for, it comes in handy in case you're not sure or you don't even know what it means or looks like: you can also select the tabs above (photos, faces, clip art and drawings). Have fun! Hide
