The sounds of English and the International Phonetic Alphabet

Commentary by Stephen Downes

One of the most valuable things I did while learning French was to repeat pronunciations over and over. It's essential to get pronunciations right, otherwise you don't learn from reading (because you don't associate words with sounds) and you have difficulty understanding the spoken language. Also, getting the pronunciation right means that you will have much less of an accent when you speak, which makes you easily understood by others. Here is a set of English language pronunciations, with audio examples. If you are studying English, I recommend you use this guide regularly once a day for several weeks.
