     Web Sites for Pronunciation

     http://soundsofspeech.uiowa.edu/resources/english/english.htmlPhonetics  

    The University of Iowa

    This is a great site for showing how the mouth forms various sounds in English. A moving diagram demonstrates the position of the mouth, tongue, and lips. In addition, you can hear and see a real person saying the sound.

     

    http://www.englishclub.com/pronunciation/index.htm  - English Club

    This web site is a good source of information for listening and speaking skills. It provides rules, examples, and quizzes. There are links for supplemental sites for pronunciation at.  Note: Using a plug-in for this site makes it easier to navigate, but you can still hear the sounds without loading the plug-in. In addition, there is a link for listening skills at http://www.englishclub.com/listening/index.htm. At this site, you can listen to authentic news articles, but one of the sections uses British broadcasts.

     

    http://www.manythings.org

    This is a great web site with many practice exercises, stories, and articles that are spoken.

     http://www.manythings.org/pp/

    American English Pronunciation Practice

    Minimal pairs (pairs of words that have the same pronunciation except for one sound) are featured on this site.  You can hear the words and complete the quiz. There are also some songs, poems, and tongue twisters.

     

     http://www.manythings.org/listen/

    Listening and Read Along

    Short passages are read aloud, and you can follow along. The pace is slow, but the pronunciation is clear. There are a variety of topics from American culture, such as music, health, and the environment.

     

    http://www.manythings.org/ac/

    Audio Concentration Games

    A memory card game can be found on this site. An announcer speaks several words that sound alike, and you have to find the cards with the matching sound. This game is a bit difficult because the words have very similar sounds. However, it is great practice for hearing the subtle differences in words.

    Note: The main site is Interesting Things for ESL Studentswww.manythings.org. You can find many fun activities for vocabulary, grammar, and reading. Some of the activities require special plug-ins.

In addition, there are interesting audio exercises that require you to listen and respond to rapid English. Also, you can practice conversation skills with questions and answers (without audio). The speech is clear, but a bit exaggerated.

     

    http://www.npr.org/templates/rundowns/rundown.php?prgId=2

    National Public Radio

    This is the website for the National Public Radio.  An announcer reads authentic news reports. However, the speech is fast, which may be difficult for beginning listeners. This site requires a plug-in.
