This is the first Phonemic Symbols Quiz App. It contains 3 levels of difficulty. There are five words within each level, taken from the Student's Workbook, for the student to solve. The student will hear the word in question and an indication of how many phonemes are contained in the word is displayed above the grid on the screen. Level 1 has an 8 box grid of symbols, Level 2, 12 and Level 3 a 16 box grid. The student's results will be displayed at the end of each level.

The Teacher's iBook Version

Just attach your iPad or Apple computer to the classroom projector and you're ready to go! Our teacher's electronic IPA tool is one year old and we're celebrating by offering a 50% reduction on this iBook version of our unique colour-coded phonemic grid.

I could never remember the phonemic symbols from my CELTA course. But now it's so easy and fun too!
Teacher on one of our workshops in Solothurn, Switzerland.
Thank you so much for the workshop! I never thought I'd say this, but I can't wait to start teaching the phonemic symbols using your method!

Phonsy has landed!


Phonsy, an alien from Planet PSP10, lands on earth following an accident with his spaceship. There he meets two boys who would like to help him get back home. The only problem is that Phonsy can't speak English. He can only produce 'strange looking symbols' that look like lights. The boys don't know what the symbols mean. If they want to help Phonsy, they have to learn the phonemic symbols.

This comic announces the arrival of our long-awaited lower primary school level printed materials intended to engage and motivate young students to learn the IPA. The main ingredient is 'fun'. A large dash of simplicity, clarity and consistency make up the other ingredients.

A Supplementary Teacher's Resource Book supports the teacher using this comic with further symbol and sound activities, guidelines as to how to extend each unit and integrate it with vocabulary and grammar introduced in the student's normal course book. It is designed to be used in conjunction with the main Teacher's Resource Book published last year. This combination provides the teacher with comprehensive resources and support for teaching Grade 3 to adult student level.


These 2 publications are sold in sets. For more details please visit the publications page on this website.
