Shona, the link isn't working - it just connects back to this page...
Thanks for all the great work, btw!
Shona Whyte's comment, September 19, 2012 11:56 AM
Hi Cynthia, I think it just look the same as the usual site page because I posted some listening links today. But if you look the url, it's actually calling up everything I tagged as listening. It's kind of a "best-of" post, but I can see why it might be confusing. I made it to share with my students ... who are going to be doing lots of listening :-)

Ah...thanks, Shona!

Pronunciation animations - Cambridge University Press English Language Teaching | ELT: Oral Skills | Scoop.it

Shona Whyte:

This site has animations with sound to help learners with sounds (diphthongs), stress (word and sentence stress), and intonation (rising and falling intonation).  It also has phonemic charts for English vowels and consonants - click on the symbol to hear the sound.

 

Useful for even beginning learners, and a good resource for checking general rules (e.g., word stress) and the phonemic inventory of English.
