Phonetic Aesop Course - 5 Activities

Aesop’s Fables have been retold numerous times and added to over the centuries, and many of the fables’ morals have become so well known that they have become part of the English language. The lessons in this course are based on a 1919 version of Aesop’s Fables chosen because the language is suitable for learners of English yet is rich and varied enough to cover all aspects of British English pronunciation when coupled with the British English phonetic transcripts. Translated into British English IPA transcripts, these phonetic Aesop lessons will help students improve their pronunciation and teachers of English as a second or foreign language who want to work on pronunciation in the classroom.
