There is a system of symbols for writing the sounds of English. Here you'll find a guide to these symbols and also videos to show how to pronounce each of the sounds.
There are also activities to practise identifiying the difference between certain sounds which may sound similar.

To listen to the sounds of English you can also try our audio chart. The chart will open in a pop-up window.
