Free phonemic alphabet chart – Resources for English students

Phonemic alphabet chart

I am sure that some of you have heard of the ‘phonemic chart’. If not, let me explain what it is and show you its importance.

In the English alphabet there are 26 letters, these letters make up to 44 sounds which are called ‘phonemes’. The purpose of the phonemic chart is to help the student learn these 44 sounds of the English language. This will helps the student to correctly pronounce words with an English dialect.

Here are some benefits of getting to know the Symbols in the phonemic chart:-

  1. It will improve your English language awareness. By learning the sounds, you’ll be able to recognise mistakes in your speech.
  2. You’ll be able to make full use of dictionaries. Phonemics are used in most dictionaries to show the reader how to properly pronounce words.
  3. If your teacher corrects you, the symbols in phonetic chart will help you to remember the pronunciation.

Where can I get a Phonemic Chart?

You can download a free phonemic chart from ‘my English teacher online’. I am sure you’ll find it helpful in learning proper pronunciation. It helps me a lot when I am trying to correct the pronunciation of my students

If you can think of any other resources that you might find helpful, please let me know and I’ll see what I can do.

Study hard!
