David Ding

      One day, he decided to invent something different.

Localingual Map

      So, he created Localingual. It is a world map that shows each country and breaks it down to regions as you zoom in.

LocaLingual Pronunciation

      When you click on a region, you listen to a sentence with the local pronunciation of that region.

      The website was innaugurated on January 8, 2017. It has had more than 500,000 visitors. 18,000 visitors recorded their voices in the site.
