I have been learning German for the last couple of years using DuoLingo. The dialect taught there is of course Hochdeutsch. I have since finished all DuoLingo content and have now moved on to LingQ. My question is this: Is there a website or utility that I could use to check pronunciation of German words as I get exposed to new words while reading and learning? Thanks in advance for your advice.

has German spelling and pronunciation, directly grouped with the English translation.


You may take a look at


as it gives you pronunciations by native speakers and the IPA (International Phonetic Alphabet) symbols for most of the words in it.


As long as you are indeed looking for only the pronunciation of single words or simple expressions, you may use the soundbits given by the Dict.cc dictionary


Click on the loudspeaker icon next to the word, and you get a collection of pronunciations by native speakers.
