Join hundreds of students and teachers around the world who have downloaded and enjoyed this easy and engaging way to learn and master the IPA chart and its symbols.
I use this eBook with all of my online students when we are looking at accent reduction and an improvement of their British English pronunciation. The IPA chart is an essential cornerstone for anyone wishing to perfect their British English accent. Because it’s so important, and because teaching it demands a considerable amount of teaching time and expense, I decided to write this eBook to make it as easy and cheap as possible for anyone, teacher or student, to get to grips with the British English IPA chart and use it effectively.
If you learn the 44 symbols of the British English IPA phonemic chart, you will always be able to pronounce any word correctly with the use of a good dictionary.
After a decade teaching phonetics to students and teachers alike, I saw a need for this Interactive PDF format book. It will help you to learn the chart, and also to reproduce the correct sounds for each of the 44 symbols. Never again will you be afraid that you are going to mispronounce a word.
The eBook contains over 80 hyperlinked pages and hundreds of audio files which you can listen to without having to leave the PDF document as they are embedded in the pages. Each page also contains an interactive IPA chart, which makes it simple to navigate to the pages for any of the 44 symbols and sounds with the click of a mouse. You are never more than a single click away from the sound you want to practice.

I can’t say enough about the do or make pack. It’s exactly what I’ve been looking for. I won’t make the same mistakes I used to.

The 5Wh activation pack is very best. Thank you much for you help me with English. Now I ask questions well.
Funny little book
I bought this book to help show my appreciation for Richard’s hard work. It’s a bit short, but interesting nevertheless. You can tell that Richard really loves teaching us, and I learned a lot about conditionals from this little book.
I love science
I love science and I wanted to know how to say all the elements in the periodic table. Now I do. I also learned some interesting facts about each one. Yes, you should buy this ebook.
A bit short
I paid only 1€ for this little comic. The idea is interesting, but I would not recommend paying more than 1€ for it.
It took a long time to do this mystery puzzle. A lot of material and a lot of clues to think about. I recommend it.
I never knew there were so many food idioms in English, but I do now. This is a great eBook and I recommend it to anyone who wants to improve their vocabulary. You’ll buy it if you know what side your bread is buttered.
Not able to tell you how happy I am with the inversion English Activation Pack. No sooner did I begin the quiz than I began to see a big improvement. I’m hoping to do the CPE in the Autumn, so this is just what I needed.
I really like the video with Dr Death, and think he was right about Sheeple. I meet them every day. This material is okay for a couple of euro. I prefer the newer English Activation Packs, though.
This is the fourth English Activation Pack I have bought and it really is the best yet. The conversation simulations are amazingly useful. I can see how different answers get different responses. I can also see how not to ask questions or make complaints. I can’t wait for the next pack.
Just what I needed
This is a great way to learn about phrasal verbs as well as idioms. I have been studying English for 10 years, but I have never had such a funny way to learn before. Thank you for your hard work Richard.
Being Italian, I always have problems with the h at the beginning of words. This silent letter activation packs is exactly what I needed. I only paid one euro but it is worth much more than I paid. Next time I will pay more because it’s worth every cent. You won’t regret it.
My pronunciation improved!
After working through the interactive ipa chart book I understand more about how English words are sounded. Before I knew nothing and struggled to say words right. This book is necessary for everyone to use if they want to better their speaking.
A good idea
It’s a very good idea. The whole pack looks nice and has a lot of information inside. I certainly learned some new vocabulary. I will buy some more packs soon. Thank you.
Best ever idioms book
I have spent a lot of money on idioms books, but this is the best I’ve seen. It’s got so many idioms that you can really get your teeth into it. Yes, you should buy this book today. Hey, I only paid 5€ for it, so it’s a bargain.
I was born in the Year of Pig in 1995 so I was happy to see this pig got good luck and not got eaten.
