Forvo is your friend!

Okay, a couple of months ago we learned about a great website called Wiktionary. Well, like Wiktionary, Forvo is free and available in multiple languages. However, Forvo isn’t a dictionary. It’s a database of words spoken by native speakers. So if you’re not sure that you’re pronouncing a word correctly, you can head on over to Forvo.com and look up that word.

You will encounter the occasional crappy recording and not all Russian words are pronounced on Forvo, but hey — there’s quite a bit on there, and it’s free!

So, definitely visit http://www.forvo.com/languages/ru/ if you want hear natives pronounce words!
