Abstract (at least 300 words to describe your proposal)

In order to learn a new language, we will listen to the pronunciation of the particular word, will try to reuse the word, then after will try to write the alphabets. The aim is to provide all these facilities through our wiktionary.

Currently, 3+ languages having in wiktionary having more than a million words, whereas over 25+ languages in wiktionary having more than a lakh words. Already we have the facility of checking the meaning in different languages, wiktionary also having facility to add the audio files for the same. By adding the visual animation for each of the letter and making it as combination for all words, will make our wiktionary as media dictionary.

The objective is to create the common database to map with the different languages to help with the meaning, pronunciation and also animation to write the same word. Its just making it as an initiative. Apart from WikiMedia projects, we can make CD/DVD of this media dictionary and can be issued to the government schools and orphanages, which will also help the poor students to learn other languages.
