We're the smallest company making the largest product you may never have heard of
For the past 10 years, Pronunciator has been quietly toiling away on a mission to create the most robust, most creative, most effective language-learning resource available.
We have a vast number of languages to learn (99), but even more important is the sheer amount of instructional content available — an average of 9,500 instructional phrases per language. This is 20 times more content than our nearest competitor. It means you can learn more and go further with Pronunciator — much further. It also means you can create awesomely robust Personalized Courses (more on that below).
Our ESL course, taught in 62 home languages, is itself the largest in the world, with over 50,000 instructional phrases. Our American Sign Language course is also the largest available, with 20,000 instructional videos.
But we don’t stop there. We also offer feature films with integrated drills and quizzes; video phrases where you can see the native speaker clearly speaking each instructional phrase (just like when you were a child learning your first language); 650,000 hours (that’s 74 calendar years) of downloadable audio lessons; major label music with lyrics; video city tours; and so much more.
Having this immense collection of resources puts Pronunciator in a unique position to offer Personalized Courses — which we consider to be the Holy Grail of computer-based language learning.
Who we are
Founded by Robert Savage, a former university language teacher of ESL and a librarian, Pronunciator’s ethos is a blend of sustainable economics and public service. In the 8 years since we were awarded our first organizational contract, we have, for example, never raised our annual subscription rates, and personally know each one of our 1,500+ organizational clients.
We’re based in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. For those who know Jackson, you know how special it is. For those who don’t, we think it’s a lot like Pronunciator: straight-forward, yet full of the most wonderful opportunities imaginable.
