Phonetizer is a lightweight software application built specifically for helping you generate the phonetic transcription for English texts.

Even if the software is no free you can use the online version by free

You can use Phonetizer without installing it on your computer.Add phonetic English transcription online.

Of course, then you can copy your transcription anywhere. This version is more limited but I consider that it is useful for many occasions.

One of the best and most enjoyable ways to improve yor pronuntiation is by practising tongue twisters. They are powerful tools for warming up your muscles used for speech. If you know that there is certain sound that causes you difficulty find the tongue twister that can help you to practice it.Here you have some of them.

For some of them I have added the videos from you tube.

These ones below are from DLTK’s growing together

Phase 2 Tricky words

Not much to be said about this excellent game for learning.

See if you can match the tricky words and put them on the bus or just listen to the word and see if you can find it. A word game with tricky words from Phase 2 of Letters and Sounds.

A simple drag and drop activity to improve ‘tricky word’ recognition.

Use the first mode to enable simple word-to-word matching. Drag the word onto the vehicle. Use the harder mode to really focus on reading, listening to the word and searching for it in the list before dragging.

READING BEAR- phonetics for young learners

1211What age level is Reading Bear for?

Reading Bear is aimed mainly at children learning to read at the traditional ages of 4-7. The concepts, vocabulary, and length of the presentations were designed especially with these ages in mind. But even younger children do enjoy and get something out of Reading Bear.

ATTENTION: the account is free but you need to log in

How is Reading Bear supposed to work?

Reading Bear combines carefully-matched text and audio with pictures and videos, to show the student precisely how each letter is sounded out and what words mean. This will, we hope, “unlock the mystery” of reading for young students both in terms of phonics and comprehension.

The student can systematically begin with a very easy presentation type?”Sound It Out Slowly”?and even have all the words demonstrated in advance, with no participation required. For the next step, the student hears the words blended slowly and is asked only to blend it quickly. By the third step, the student has heard the words two or more times apiece and has very likely begun to internalize sounds being taught. So the student is ready to start blending the word with only a quick sounding-out of the word as a prompt. In the last step, the student both sounds out and blends the words with only the text as a clue.


speakbooks7This page was opened in September of 2002 as a free public service to teach children to read with phonics. Their systematic phonics approach, in conjunction with phonemic awareness practice, is perfect for preschool, kindergarten, first grade, second grade, special education, homeschool, and English language development (ELD, ELL, ESL). Starfall is an educational alternative to other entertainment choices for children.

It is divided into 4 sections that I presents below



 Starfall’s ABC section teaches letter-sound that focuses on each letter of the alphabet. This explicit instruction is most effective in kindergarten and for ESL and special education students when it is combined with exercises in phonemic awareness.


With 15 useful books to start reading with phonemes plus other activities where children will have lots of fun:
Zac the Rat
Peg the Hen
The Big Hit
Mox’s Shop
Gus the Duck
Jake’s Tale
Pete’s Sheep
Sky Ride
Robot and Mr. Mole
Dune Buggy
Soap Boat
Car Race
My Horse Glory
Surfer Girl
My Family


It’s next step to the previous one: “Learn to read” Here you will have interactive games at the same time your children learn




As you see is next step to previous one: this section is divided into 6 more. But if you clich on each one you will find more than 40 titles, all of them with audio and images.
