Phonetic Transcription Exercises

Phonetic Transcription Exercises helps students deal with the mental aspect of pronunciation. I always indicate that at first you have to figure out what sounds made up a word and then you have to worry about how to produce and imitate those sounds.


Before you start transcribing these words phonetically, remember to be consistent with the symbols you use for the transcriptions. I recommend using the International Phonetic Alphabet which is used in these resources:

  1. Cambridge Online Dictionary
  2. English Pronunciation in Use
  3. Videos about English Pronunciation


If you aren’t sure if you got one of the words from the list correct, you can use the  Cambridge Online Dictionary to verify the results yourself.
