Answer  –VoiceTown uses the English alphabet to identify individual sounds in words and rather than mimicking a word, you can listen to and read the pronunciation of thousands of words.  If you don’t see the content you need, you will be able to request additional vocabulary words on the site by submitting them on an excel spreadsheet to contact@voicetown.net at no extra cost to you.  You may submit additional terms to any of the sections and can submit entire lists of words that you would find useful.  For new lists of words, such as a new category in Professional Vocabularies, you may submit 150-300 terms typed on an excel spreadsheet.  They will be written in VoiceTown, recorded and uploaded on the site.  The VoiceTown website is meant to be interactive to meet the needs of the students.

Answer –Although it will help students at all levels, the website is designed to help students who already know some English.  The different sections will improve your communication in your personal and professional life by learning to properly pronounce words you may already use or words you will use in the future.    

Answer – If you don’t take the lessons, you will not be able to hear all of the sounds of English, know how to make the sounds correctly, or combine them into words.  The lessons lay the foundation for all of the other modules on the site. 

Answer – English is a very difficult language to learn because there are many pronunciation rules and exceptions to those rules.  In this section, you will learn various rules for pronunciation, how the pronunciation of words is modified, pronunciation of frequently used words, and words made up of  2, 3, 4, and 5+ sounds, and more. 

Answer – You will learn to pronounce commonly used words correctly and will be better understood at the grocery store, restaurant, doctor’s office, children’s schools, university, etc. 

Answer – Whether you are taking university courses, interested in becoming a teaching assistant, interested in getting a promotion at work, or giving professional presentations, VoiceTown will help you with the correct pronunciation of academic and professional vocabulary.  If there are words that are not listed on the site, or a whole category of words, such as microbiology or music, you can submit them to the site on an excel spreadsheet at contact@voicetown.net .  You can list as many as 150-300 words per category.  The words will be written in VoiceTown and recorded and uploaded on the site at no extra cost to you.

 

Answer – The 8 Basic Lessons are required before signing into all other sections on the site.  Pronunciation Tips will help with additional practice on difficult sounds as well as rules of pronunciation.  Since the questions on the Speaking Test include personal and professional vocabulary, it would be best to sign up for the sections on Life in America and Professional Vocabularies, as well as the TOEFL section.   Not only will you learn individual words that will be helpful, you will also become more familiar with the patterns of English pronunciation.   

Answer – The section is for the speaking section of the test only.  There are hundreds of pages of information condensed to less than ten for you to study.  The basics have been identified and presented in a concise manner.  There is also a list of 500 words that will help with the test.  The speaking section is the most failed section of the TOEFL Test and VoiceTown has the ability to improve your pronunciation dramatically, if you take the time to really work on your pronunciation.

Answer – You have the opportunity to submit words or lists of words to the site through contact@voicetown.net and they will be written in VoiceTown, recorded and uploaded on the site, at no extra cost to you.  The site is meant to be interactive and meet the needs of the students.   For example:  If you want to submit a list of words for the professional vocabulary section, you should type the words on an excel spreadsheet and submit it to the site.  You may submit 150 – 300 terms per section and may submit as many sections as you want. 

Answer – You should submit your suggestions to the site at contact@voicetown.net .  The site is meant to be interactive and will be updated regularly to meet the needs of the students.
