This blog has been designed to provide information about the activities held at the social studies bilingual sections in CPI Tino Grandío (Guntín,Spain). The English language and Social Studies teachers have elaborated most of the resources you can see but our "auxiliares de conversa" also have their own page and posts. Therefore everyone is invited to have a look .

IPA Symbols for English

The IPA is an alphabetic system of phonetic notation based primarily on the Latin alphabet, even though certain symbols are taken from other alphabets. It represents oral language and it can be used to represent any oral language: English, Galician or Chinese, for instance. The IPA is particularly valuable for learners of languages which do not have a perfect letter-sound correspondence.
These are the symbols used to represent standard British English. Other varieties might require other symbols.
