Themed wordlists for Sounds: The Pronunciation App

Macmillan Dictionary has launched three new wordlists for the award-winning Sounds: the Pronunciation App.

Sounds includes an interactive phonemic chart and allows students to practise their pronunciation through a variety of listening, writing and reading activities. The app is based on the best-selling book Sound Foundations by Adrian Underhill and has won an ELTon award for Innovation in Learner Resources. All wordlists also come with Macmillan Dictionary definitions that help with understanding meaning and improving vocabulary.

The brand-new wordlists have been especially selected by Macmillan Dictionary and are based on three themes:
