What are BabelGuides?

BabelGuides help you improve your pronunciation and understanding of texts in foreign languages. Each BabelGuide contains an MP4 video, in which you hear a native speaker reciting the original text while you see the text, a word-for-word translation and phonetic guide. You'll also receive a printable PDF of the Translation & Phonetic Guide. You can choose to hear the text recited poetically, slowly, and alternating speed line by line. 

BabelGuides are available for complete works or for individual movements from those works.

Printable PDFs of the Translation and Phonetic Guides are also available separately, for complete works, for individual movements, and in licensed form (minimum of 20 copies) for ensembles.
