To improve students pronunciation we follow these recordings by the BBC.
Students know that the English alphabet has 26 letters, but there are more than 26 sounds in English, in fact there are over 40 sounds in English and it is not very easy to show this only using the letters of the English alphabet, so there is a system which uses a group of symbols.
Some of these symbols are the same as letter and some are different.
In these videos students will become acquainted with the sounds symbols so that they can learn the pronunciation of new words since most dictionaries have the phonetic transcription of words.
