These audio pronunciation files are in MP3 format and you can directly access them without even using Google Search. Just use the following URL and replace WORD with any of the English words that you are still learning to pronounce.

To give you an example, here are some sample audio pronunciation files that you can right-click and directly download to your computer.

And this trick may even work with difficult words for which Google doesn’t offer an audio pronunciation hint – for instance, supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.mp3.
