Okay – this one doesn’t have a direct tie to real estate – but it helps me in real estate and many other things in life.

How many times have you wondered how to pronounce things – especially if it’s a foreign word or name?

www.forvo.com to the rescue!  At Forvo, it’s as easy as typing in a word or name to quickly come up with the correct pronunciation.  And not just a visual (which is often no help), but a clickable icon that plays a clip of a native speaker pronouncing the name, word or phrase.

Got an email from a man name Didier?  Think you can pronounce it like it rhymes with “tidier”?  No!  It’s Did-ee-ay.  Thanks to Forvo.

How about a common Vietnamese name – Nguyen?  That one leaves a lot of people scratching their heads.  How simple to hear a variety of native speakers say it.  Don’t embarrass yourself by calling that client “Mr. Nug-oo-yen.”  It’s simply pronounced “When.”

Ordering a simple Central American dish?  Listen to people pronounce Ceviche the right way!

There are tons of ways this comes in handy.  I have it linked on my desk top I use it so much!
