IPA (International Phonetic Alphabet)

The International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) is a standardized system of symbols used to represent the sounds of spoken language. Each symbol corresponds to a specific phoneme, allowing precise notation of pronunciation. In language learning, the IPA is a valuable tool for teaching and learning pronunciation, as it provides a clear and consistent way to represent sounds. Teachers can use the IPA to help students learn the correct pronunciation of words, understand differences between sounds, and improve their phonetic awareness.
