With this interactive site you can visit a continent and read several facts about the languages spoken on that continent. Then click on the lips to hear the language spoken in a specific place. Each person has the same conversation, saying seven phrases. As you roll over each phrase, it is translated from English to the language of the place you are visiting. You can listen for similarities in languages, or hear how differently we sound even when we are saying the same thing.
