"ELSA, English Language Speech Assistant, is a fun and engaging app specially designed to help you improve your English pronunciation." [from elsaspeak.com]
ELSA Speak is an app for your phone. It uses artificial intelligence technology to recognize speech patterns and help English language learners develop their speaking and pronunciation skills. According to the website, "27 hours of studying with ELSA is equivalent to an ESL speaking course at an American University."
Here's what one reviewer says:
"I never thought I would be able to get rid of my strong Chinese accent. Then I discovered this app. It helped me identify issues with my pronunciation that I was not aware of."
Others say there is room for improvement. "I like the app overall, but there are some improvements that can be made, and bugs that can be fixed," says one user.
"There is still quite a lot that could be done to this app," writes a reviewer of the product.
Some of my students have used it for some time and really like it. To read more about ELSA Speak, you can go to their website: elsaspeak.com. Also, if you want to read some third-party reviews of the speaking practice app, go to any of the following:
