An Introduction to PHONETICS

As most of you know, I am quite a fan of phonetics and believe they play an important role in learning any language.  Here is a video to introduce you to what phonetics are and why and how they are used in language learning.  It also shows you the different symbols used in phonetics and how each sounds.

VEGETABLES vocabulary

If you are looking to do some cooking or specialise in that area, here are another great selection of words related to vegetables which you may find useful!

IN THE KITCHEN vocabulary

Another great by Linguaspectrum, specific pictures and vocabulary related to the kitchen.  Bon Apetit!

TRANSPORT Vocabulary

Here is a great video showing pictures and vocabulary related to forms of transport... there is an enormous variety... and even I learnt some words I was unfamiliar with!


If you're feeling brave and want to have a go at testing your vocabulary skills. Play wordmaster... warning... it's not as easy as it may seem!
