LETTERS and PHONEMES

Words in WRITTEN ENGLISH are made up of LETTERS. However, in SPOKEN ENGLISH we use small units of individual SOUNDS (called PHONEMES) to form SPOKEN WORDS.

1. These are the LETTERS that we use in WRITING to form the WRITTEN WORDS.

2. These are the SOUNDS that we use in SPEECH to form the SPOKEN WORDS.

Note: Our English Club has an "Interactive Phonemic Chart". You can use the chart to practise the above SPEECH SOUNDS individually. Have fun!

You can use this Vocaroo "voice recorder" to record you saying the above SOUNDS and listen to your recording. The widget WILL NOT SAVE YOUR RECORDING. Thus, you can practise the speech sounds as many times as you want.
