Adding pronunciation to vocabulary

Can you add written pronunciation for the words in the vocabulary? (e.g. using International Phonetic Alphabet https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Phonetic_Alphabet).

It would be helpful in understanding the exact way a word is pronounced.

By the way, learning a language using DuoLingo is amazingly fun. I feel I am leaning way faster than I could by any other means. Thanks a lot. :)

I'd like to see IPA as well. The mock-ups (http://imgur.com/a/tbv7j) showed some other phonetic script (the one Merriam-Webster uses?), but instead of changing it to IPA they got rid of it entirely. :(


I would like to see IPA too


Even basic help with pronunciation would be very helpful. There are some words where I'm not sure which sound is being used.
