Have you ever used INOGOLO?
We can always benefit from another way to learn the pronunciation of unfamiliar names and brands.
Sometimes I send my students to this website, Inogolo, for the pronunciations of people, places and proper names.
On Inogolo, you can hear the pronunciation of many different names, from dog breeds to politicians (no connection intended there, really!)
Or maybe you want to know how to pronounce an Oscar award nominee’s name.

They even pronounce different kinds of wine and beer names for you.
