Phonetics practice tool

Phonetics practice tool

Our IT and phonetics staff have developed an interactive chart so you can practise recognising and producing certain sounds. The characters are from the International Phonetics Alphabet (IPA). Those that appear highlighted are taught in the phonetics subject at Launch. Simply click on the symbols to hear what they sound like.

Access the phonetics practice tool here.
This version of the practice tool displays the vowel symbols according to the order they are taught in the Launch. Page one shows only those vowels taught in week one of the course. Use the ‘next’ button to progress through the weeks of the course and see more vowel symbols appear.
