Interactive Phonemic Chart - The Service Communications Cooperative Ltd with Morley College London
This is a new and free online tool: an interactive phonemic chart with audio and video options for each of the 44 phonemes. We were inspired by online audio phonemic charts currently available and felt that a visual explanation could really help to raise awareness about how sounds are made. It is user-friendly product, meant as a reference tool to encourage non-English speakers to focus on pronunciation, both in the classroom and in the privacy of their own home. We have had very positive feedback since launching it in June and would like you to consider it for an award.
