Hello everyone. Remember that I have shared with you some of the mistakes found in our everyday speech? Okay, today, I would like to share with you on Phonetics. What are Phonetics? Phonetics are transcriptions that help to guide us to pronounce English words correctly.

Here are tables of Phonetics Alphabets to assist you.
