Teaching phonetics
 
Hi everyone,
I wonder if somebody can recommend me a good book that explains English phonetic symbols and how to use them properly to be able to write the phonetic transcription of words listening to them. It is what some students of mine who study at university are looking for.
Thanks in advance
Yolanda

Hi Yolanda,
 
How about
Calvert īs Descriptive Phonetics: Introduction and Transcription Workbook
I think Roberto Merino has also published a good handbook 
 
But you need something for your students to write down the symbols after listening... Mmmm... Some websites will give you online phonetic transcription but they won īt "read it out" for you...

...or if they have an audio tool it īs after the transcription, not before
https://tophonetics.com/
 
So... Not sure that helped, I īll keep searching
Regards

The Cambridge English phonetics website is fantastic: http://cambridgeenglishonline.com/Phonetics_Focus/ It has lots of interactive games for practising the symbols, and a printable PDF poster here: http://cambridgeenglishonline.com/Phonetics_Focus/pdf/poster.pdf
