This presentation uses the phonetic transcription of Merriem-Webster's www.learnersdictionary.com to teach the vowel and consonant sounds of standard American English. The 49 pages include two example words for each phonetic sound. All words are accompanied by high-quality photographs to teach the words.
These handouts/presentation can be used in conjunction with another product I have here that teaches the alphabet using many of the same words and photos.
This product has been designed for teaching ESL to adults from level 0, but can also be used to aid in pronunciation in different level students by teaching them to recognize phonetic symbols and that spelling and pronunciation are not always connected.
Some of the symbols used in this presentation are different from those used in my other American Pronunciation product. However, both can be used together to introduce students to the different phonetic transcription styles utilized by different dictionaries.
