The Acton Memorial Library now offers “Pronunciator” as part of the library’s language learning services. Pronunciator includes courses in 80 languages, as well as English for native speakers of 50 non-English languages.  Lessons are available online via a web browser and through full-featured apps for Android, Apple and Kindle Fire devices.

Pronunciator offers the ability to learn any language from any other language — making for 4,000 possible course combinations!   The programs are focused on quickly building conversational skills and include learning levels from children’s and beginner through advanced.  One level, specifically for tourists and business travelers, teaches 1,500 essential phrases covering everyday situations. Each course also has up to 350 hours of downloadable audio lessons.

The library will continue to offer “Mango Languages”, another popular language learning service that  is also available through web browsers and mobile apps.

To access these services, please visit the library’s website at, and click on “E-Resources” (at the top of the page in a desktop browser, or under the “Resources & Research” tab on mobile devices); or click HERE to go directly to Pronunciator.

Acton residents may set up a Pronuciatior account from home; other library patrons may register from a library computer.
