Website teaches you how to pronounce ethnic names

leave a comment »

HEARNAMES.COM is a website that shows you how to pronounce ethnic names from over 34 languages. It provides an audio clip for a long list of names for each language and allows you to recommend the clip or report it depending on how accurate you think it is.

I checked a bunch of korean names and they had varying levels of accuracy. Another thing to note is that some names can be pronounced in various ways since the anglicizing of the names may be inaccurate.
