PHONETIC ALPHABET /fəʊˈnetɪkˈælfəbɪt/


The outstanding existing differences between the English phonological system and the Spanish one, among other problems, make Spanish learners find it really difficult to pronounce properly. I'm convinced that phonetics can help overcome those difficulties as well as provide more autonomy in the learning of a language. So... let's get started!

Las notables diferencias existentes entre el sistema fonológico de la lengua inglesa y el de la lengua española , entre otros problemas, hacen que nuestros alumnos encuentren especial dificultad en pronunciar correctamente. Estoy convencida que la fonética puede ayudar a superar esas dificultades además de proporcionar más autonomía en el aprendizaje del idioma. Así que... manos a la obra!

How about starting from the beginning?
