I thought this service might be interesting for many of you - the new Say Mondo
English Tutor service. Say Mondo
helps non-native English speakers prepare for presentations/speeches by providing a grammar-corrected MP3 file of the speech read by a native English speaker. It is a site from one of our members - Aaron - and I met with him this week and convinced him to share the service as a free give-away at the Summer Dinner Party! Beside the lucky give-away winners, he also will give a 50% discount to members who want to try it anytime this month.News & Blogs
