Hi guys! I'm studying to bridge the gap between B2 and C1 English level and I would like to know which mobile app you guys recommend for those who want to listen and read a book at the same time the app’s voice is speaking. I don't like Siri's or Alexa's robotic voice on Kindle and I don’t know any other app apart from Audible. I'm looking for similar apps to the Audible (have you guys tried using it?). I would like an indication of another mobile app that reads the book with a human voice in English and with the text showing on in the screen. If you are looking for such an app to learn Portuguese, my mother tongue, I’d recommend you to download the "autibooks" app. This app has a large library of books in Portuguese and the narrator has a human voice, not a mechanical one.

The most difficult words to pronounce in Spanish for foreigners When I teach a language, pronunciation plays a super important role. Some languages that are more akin to Spanish will be easier for you to pronounce, given the similarity between the different sounds. I notice that exist a lot of words really difficult to pronounce when I offer my Spanish service for students here: some of them cost much more than others! And this is not related to the mental capacity of the student, but to Him/Her native language (try asking an English speaker to pronounce the double R). These are the 8 most difficult words to pronounce in Spanish according to the BBC: #Quehaceres #Desarrollar #Halagüeño #Sacacorchos #Ronronear #Sanguijuela #Anaranjada #Tejemaneje How do you feel when you pronounce them? did you have difficulties? let me know it!
