Phonics Resources

Posted on Posted in Uncategorized

Phonics (pronunciation) is often one of the most neglected areas of English language teaching. Most likely due to teachers’ lack of confidence and unfamilarity in the subject. Fortunately there are now a lot of resources available online to support both teachers and learners. So here are few of my favourite phonics resources.

Chance English IPA Chart PDF

I wanted an IPA chart that included pictures, colour coded vowels, consonants and dipthongs, and had imbeded audio. I couldn’t find one so I made my own. Download and open in Adobe Reader to get the sound. This IPA chart is based on British ‘RP’ pronunciation.
