Thank you, as a native English speaker and only a new esl teacher. I have never used this method to teach the sounds as this is not how we do it with native english kids in English speaking countries (like NZ and UK). Thank you so much for a clear and easy to understand worksheet because I am really nervous about starting to try and use this way of teaching the sounds. (I am learning myself also what the symbols mean.) I am trying to teach myself at the moment so I will be more confident. :-) Thank you again! :-)
Thank you for this. I,like Cheezles, am about to try and teach myslf the phonetic alphabet. It looks very confusing on 1st glance. I have down loaded your worksheet but I canīt see the summery you spoke of. I was hoping this summery would help explain how to use the fine example of the Phonetic Alphabet you have provided. Thanks. (30 may 2009)
