In many countries, students have learned how to read and write in English without being able to speak English. Steve Kim, a 31 year old computer software engineer created TalkEnglish.com to provide English lessons for everyone. Steve Kim majored in English Literature at the University of Washington and worked at Microsoft for nearly 5 years.
"I have always enjoyed the English language and I have a strong passion for computers. TalkEnglish.com was a way for me to utilize my two strengths", says Kim.
The 'click, listen, and repeat' feature of TalkEnglish.com allow students to click on any of the 5,000 audio files, listen to a native English speaker, and repeat after the audio segment.
The interactive conversation tool is another feature of TalkEnglish.com. Students can practice having a conversation by using the hundreds of conversation dialogs in the database. Students can either listen to the whole conversation without interacting, or choose to engage in the conversation.
TalkEnglish.com also corrects pronunciation, intonation, and the speed of talking. Students can upload a recording of their voice, have it analyzed by a native English speaker, and receive personalized feedback.
English categories covered by TalkEnglish.com consist of Daily English, Business English, Travel English, Interview English, Phrases and Idioms, and Special Topics for foreigners living in the US.
A quote from the first page of TalkEnglish.com state the following, "TalkEnglish.com focuses solely on speaking English. It is our goal to help you gain the ability to speak English fluently."
