All About Accents is creating free e-books for accent students, with tools to help you understand accent terminology to help reach your accent goals.
This e-book is: International Phonetic Alphabet Guide for English Accent Students Part 1: English Consonants
The International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) is a set of symbols used to represent speech sounds, since we cannot rely on spelling for pronunciation. Use this book to help you:
--> Increase your awareness of the consonant sounds in English, with practice words and sentences
--> Access more accent resources. Many resources like books, videos, and dictionaries will refer to IPA symbols, so having a basic understanding of the symbols can help you understand these language resources
--> Quickly reference any consonant symbol through the table of contents to look up a specific symbol you encounter
Vowels are just as important as consonants and are not forgotten. Vowels will be covered in the next e-book for a more in-depth exploration of the English vowels.
If you are interested in this free E-Book, please fill out the contact form on the All About Accents website, stating in the message box that you would like a free copy of the book, and it will be sent to you electronically by e-mail. You can also e-mail All About Accents directly to request the electronic copy- Leann@allaboutaccents.com
Enjoy speaking English with confidence and your language journey!
