Enhance spoken English with Wikipedia Spoken Project

Hi all of you waiting for your spoken English to be a cake walk. Today I am going to share a very useful link, and that is from a very authentic site, that is Wikipedia. Wikipedia has come up with a great project to improve the spoken English of everyone.

The link for this great project is Wikipedia:Spoken articles. This link contains spoken audios of various words and their meanings. The best part is that the user can scan for any word in their list, and they will give a vocal explanation of that word or phrase. The article in reading is also there, but on a separate page.

It is a very good way for improving your spoken English, as you come to hear good English by very authentic sources. Moreover you get to know the meaning of that word or phrase also. The current development on spoken articles contains audios on the following categories:-

  1.      Art, architecture, and archaeology
  2.      Biology and medicine
  3.      Business
  4.      Chemistry
  5.      Culture and society
  6.      Education
  7.      Economics
  8.      Food and drink
  9.      Geography and places
  10.      Geology, geophysics, and mineralogy
  11.      History

Though the categories of articles is going to increase over time, with more and more audios added to each category. You would love to spend some quality time hearing these audios, and practicing their pronunciation.
