The Sounds of English

on October 11, 2012

Dear students,

The link given below will lead you to a web page which presents phonetic symbols in a detailed way.  It also includes videos which demonstrate how to pronounce each of the sounds.  There are also activities designed for identifying the difference between certain sounds which may sound similar.

I strongly recommend that you take a closer look at this material and study the examples provided there.

I believe that it will help you to explore phonetic symbols in depth.
