Introduction to Phonetics

The International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) chart is an excellent tool to help students improve their pronunciation. This lesson introduces and explains the IPA chart, and includes a variety of transcription exercises.

We have a teacher’s copy (including teacher’s notes) and a student version which you can email to your class for online lessons. We recommend downloading the teacher copy and reading through the teacher’s notes before class.

We also recommend downloading and providing your students with a copy of the IPA chart.
