The International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) is a chart of symbols that represent the human speech sounds. Each one has its own symbol and its unique voice, placing and manner combination. The IPA allows linguists to transcribe words in any human language.
In this session, Lyn will outline the various aspects of the chart to give educators a working knowledge of what the IPA is and how it can and can’t be used.
Participants will receive:
- A course handout including theoretical and practical materials
- Access to a video presentation on the subject of phonological awareness
- Access to forums for collaboration and consolidation
- Access to a range of low or no-cost resources to support understanding and implementation
IMPORTANT NOTE ON COURSE ACCESS
Course access is for six weeks from first login. First login is not the day you bought the course, first log in is when you went to Open Learning (our learning management system) and clicked on the link that took you to the actual course. That’s when your time starts to count down. Six weeks from that moment, your access will cease. Theoretically, you could buy the course and keep it on the back-burner for years without losing your access. But the moment you become an active user on Open Learning, is the moment your clock starts ticking. We are charged per user, so we have to time-limit your access. If you find that you need to extend your access, you can purchase extensions, month by month, for AUD$20 using this link.
