Abstract : Communication between humans is of importance for our societies. It requires constant learning of new languages, e.g., by travellers whose extended stay in foreign locations facilitate learning. When a language possesses a written form, much of the meaning necessary for its learning is directly provided by the text. In spoken languages however, the meaning is only vehicled by the sounds. Nonetheless, learning spoken languages can take advantage of linguistic contents available in audio or video media which abound on the Internet and the social networks. We open a discussion and describe a system that enables to enrich a phonetic database so as to ease learning of basic expressions of spoken languages. Such a system could be useful for the survival of the plethora of spoken languages in Africa. The purpose of such a system is to provide within a reasonable period, automatic syntactic translation services.
