English Pronunciation is a way in which a word or language is spoken. Good English pronunciation is an essential part of good communication. If you don’t have a clear English pronunciation, other people may not understand what you’re saying. Mistakes in pronunciation can cause major misunderstandings.

Learning Phonetics can be a difficult task but it is certain that you need to learn phonetics to be able to have an excellent pronunciation. There are many resources available to help you achieve that goal. We have great resources such as:

  1. The English Pronunciation in Use Series
  2. A series of videos that covers the 43 Sounds of the International Phonetic Alphabet
  3. Dictionaries
  4. The British Council Phonemic Chart 

But what if you want to use apps to make learning phonetics easier, I think apps are the future in English Language Teaching so we should start using them more in the classroom.  Here is the list of the Best English Pronunciation Apps
