The training view is the most important view in Artikulate. You will need to choose a unit in a course to start training - if you don't know the basics of Artikulate, learn how to get to the training view.
Artikulate units are composed of phrases. Phrases can be a word, expression, sentence or paragraph. Artikulate phrases are presented in increasing difficulty (starting from words, ends on paragraphs).
For each phrase, there is a pronunciation recorded by a native speaker of the language. Listen to the pronunciation, then press the record and repeat it out loud. Stop the recording when you have finished pronouncing. You can then listen to your recording to see if you pronounced it correctly. By comparing and contrasting the two recordings, you can improve your pronunciation of the language.
If you have pronounced it correctly, continue to the next phrase. If not, you can use the retry later button to skip to the next phrase and Artikulate will come back to that phrase after you finished everything else in the same difficulty group. Note that you can choose to jump to any phrase by simply selecting it on the phrase bar at the bottom.
At any time you can choose to stop training or choose another unit with the Finish Training button.
