Our IT and phonetics staff have developed an interactive chart for practising recognition and production of certain sounds. The characters are of the International Phonetics Alphabet (IPA) and those that appear highlighted are taught in the phonetics course within 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 progression they are taught in the course. Ie. Only displaying on page one those vowels taught in week one of the course. Use the “next” button to progress through the weeks of the course to see more vowel symbols appear.
