Japanese have a minimum of six years of mandatory English education, though English speaking skills still lag behind other developed parts of the world such as Scandinavia*. Many feel there are simply too few native English speakers to teach and practice with. Moreover, training for English pronunciation is often challenging for Japanese as there are few places to practice and no method of receiving "objective" feedback.

Now there is a method to assess a non-native speaker's English pronunciation to that of a native speaker, objectively. SGPRO provides an objective assessment rating of one's pronunciation through Dragon NaturallySpeaking, speech recognition known for its amazing accuracy**. The program can be used in education, by instructors as a teaching tool, by learners to practice and improve pronunciation at school or at home, or by anyone who is learning English as a second or foreign language.  Some English conversation schools now are offering this to learners as a lesson supplement.

While the position of the mouth, lips and tongue are an important part of correct pronunciation, oftentimes learners do not know with certainty if their sounds are correct. Dragon’s output with SGPRO’s scoring system tells speakers how close their sounds are to that of native English speakers. The power of Dragon NS allows users to not only practice with scripted text, but to speak freely and openly for dictation and speaking practice.

SGPRO features a fun, game-like interface with 7 keys areas for practice: Vowels, Consonants, Passages (based on STEP Eiken and TOEIC English proficiency exams), Daily Expressions, Similar Sounds, Reduced English and Katakana English.

With nearly 3,000 sentences and useful phrases in SGPRO, learners can hear the audio for each, read the written text on their screen, and speak into their microphone using Dragon NS. Their spoken words are automatically converted to text (called speech-to-text) and with the press of a button a percentage score is given by SGPRO based on the pronunciation accuracy. Any words not properly recognized, automatically change to red so users can know exactly where the challenge in pronunciation occurs. This is the first of its kind and the only pronunciation software with these capabilities and effectiveness. It’s like having a native English speaker’s ear with immediate feedback.

See this training program in action at the SGPRO.jp pronunciation site and view the YouTube demonstration videos.
