Some of the sounds in English are not found in Spanish or other languages so sometimes pronunciation can be a problem for people learning English. Also, because of the way words are spelt in English there is often no way to tell how a word should be pronunced just from it’s spelling. So there is a system of phonetic symbols which act like an alternative alphabet which has all the sounds from the English language. So with this it is possible to put on paper the way in which a word should be pronounced.

At the English Language Club we have produced an interactive phonetic chart which people who are studying English can use to practice the different sounds. If used in combination with a dictionary that has the phonetic spelling of words then people can find out how a word is pronounced.

You can find our interactive phonetic chart here on YouTube.
