As to the last point, although it is impossible to make phonetics exciting for everyone all the time, a “hands-on” approach, with plenty of examples, games, pair and group work, and teacher-student interaction can make a pronunciation unit interesting and instructive for most students.

Finally, as a universal code, the IPA enables the student to compare phonological systems, thus decompartmentalizing language study and providing a practical tool for alphbet study of other foreign languages. In particular, the symbols used by American linguists differ from those of the International Phonetic Association see Pullum and Ladusaw Discussion of the results.

Although these often heard objections are not entirely unfounded, this paper aims to show that it is desirable to introduce IUT students to the IPA, and possible to do so in a limited amount of classroom time.

In addition, we have begun to apply this technology to further languages in order to build up usage-example databases for other language pairs. Question 6 applied to all of the students respondents. It would be hard to teach a skill that many students believe is hopelessly complicated. In several classroom sessions it is obviously impossible to explore in detail the complex rules governing stress in English.

The consonants We begin with the pyonetique, which are easier to pronounce and whose symbols are easier to recognize. What inetrnational can be drawn from this informal survey? Have our students already studied the IPA?

In teaching the IPA over the years I have pared down the “pronunciation unit” to a minimum, at the risk of superficiality. Finally, in other activities following the pronunciation unit studying films or simulating job interviews, for example the IPA is often used when presenting new vocabulary.


Students are asked to pronounce the same sounds with their hands over their ears. The editorially approved PONS Online Dictionary with text translation tool now includes a database with hundreds of millions of real translations from the Internet.

Real language usage will help your translations to gain in accuracy and idiomaticity! It is obvious that non-specialists do not require a detailed study of English phonology and that “perfect pronunciation” is not our goal.

Once you have copied them to the vocabulary trainer, they are available from everywhere. Jereo koa ny pejy Ahoana ny manao takelaka rehefa te-hijery hoe ahoana no fanaovana azy. Nevertheless, if the goal is making better use of the dictionary and increasing awareness of the sound patterns of English, then it is never really “too late”. It appears from the survey that in teaching the IPA one should explain clearly the limited goals of the unit and constantly reassure those students who might feel that the IPA is hard to learn or reserved for specialists.

The teacher may first give all possible alternatives and have students choose: I try to make this entertaining by having the class chant in rap style or sing the alphabet, by asking students to recite the alphabet in different ways backwards, pronouncing every other letter, etc. As a tool for studying and improving English pronunciation, the International Phonetic Alphabet IPA can help all learners and not only future teachers or specialists. The IPA is also a universal metalanguage that can be used in learning other languages.

We also aim to integrate these usage examples into our mobile applications mobile website, apps as quickly as possible. Learning the IPA, in the limited sense of “being able to recognize and pronounce an individual word transcribed in the IPA”, is not too difficult for our students, especially when compared to other learning tasks undertaken in an IUT.

This dictation game may also be done in pairs, with students providing existing words or making up nonsense words that they must define for the class. It is therefore necessary to maintain a “playful” and “hands-on” approach throughout the unit, alternating teacher explanation with pairwork or active class participation.

In this case, the results for question phoonetique were actually more encouraging than had been expected. Pronunciation is best learned intuitively. It is also very helpful to put the symbols, examples and minimal pairs on transparencies so that they may be viewed together with an overhead projector.


Before systematically studying each symbol, I ask the students to carry out three somewhat amusing experiments.

Please do leave them untouched. Adamczewski and KeenTardieu and Guierre are particularly helpful in teaching word stress. For example, students enjoy learning the following cheer, chanted at Columbia High School New Jersey during football games: For instance, we might want to concentrate pphonetique the stress rules for the many polysyllabic words used in business, science and technology e.

In general, when presenting the IPA symbols it is best to first invite students to find words exemplifying the sound being studied. In view of the objectives stated above, it seemed wise to teach the phonetic alphabet used in the major dictionaries sold in France.

In presenting the vowels we work first on the twelve monophthongs and then on the eight diphthongs. A second and perhaps more idealistic objective is to contribute to greater language awareness see Hawkins However, students should realize that “learning a new intetnational involves not only understanding its meaning and grammatical usage, but also being able to perceive and produce the correct stress pattern.

Once again, the results were better than I had expected.

It is pointed out that in languages like English and French one sound may correspond to many spellings and one spelling may correspond to many sounds. The IPA can “back up” these activities by providing a rational framework for pronunciation, just as clear grammatical explanations can save time for learners by allowing them to spot regular patterns in the target language.

Students also enjoy the following potentially off-color tongue-twister, which highlights the same distinction: Understanding phonetic symbols”, which is written in phonetic transcription. Canadawhich have the same spelling in French and in English, but interational in part because of vowel reduction in English.
