It has three main parts:* Guess pronunciation: In this game you are presented with a written word and you have to write the pronunciation for it in IPA.* Guess spelling: In this game you are presented with the pronunciation of a word in IPA and you have to write the corresponding word. This, in addition to training your pronunciation skills, trains your spelling!* Look up word: This function looks up the IPA pronunciation of a word.Pronunroid is aimed at English as second language (ESL) learners.
