Red Ferret Journal

"Overall this is a fabulous site, which is excellently designed, clear and easy to use. The fact that it offers such a useful service as well makes it one of those ‘best of the web’ places that you hope will grow to majestic proportions."

"Forvo is a fantastic crowdsourced language site where users submit, rate and share audio clips in order to practice proper language pronunciation. One great feature is that audio files are mapped according to the speaker's region. This means you won't make the mistake of speaking le français du Québec to Parisians."
