Online sounds?

Post by FEtutor » Mon Nov 03, 2008 12:08 pm

I need to recommend a site to an adult ESOL student for checking letter/ sound production, and I'm getting lost in a sea of googling. I can't find the ones I thought I once knew of. Is there any consensus on - or suggestions of - good sites?

Jolly Phonics has one. Click on 'Information' then 'Audio'.

Hi Kelly
Many thanks for the Jolly Learning ref - tho' I must admit I'm hoping to find a site that I remember as being more adult friendly, where you could just click on the letter and hear the sound alone (I think there was the option of seeing a slow-motion clip of a mouth forming the sound), without a further download. In the meantime we're recording sounds on his phone, but there is not the same guaranteed tie-in between sight and sound.

I actually think that the THRASS 'phoneme machine' might be useful here, if it is still available, free, on their site. As I recall, it has visual clips of mouths pronouncing the phonemes.
