Hi, would like do some suggestions:

1.Is there an application of Anglo Link for iPad or iPad touch with speech and pronuciation facilities?

2. Why not a phonetic transcript together with the regular and irregular verbs. Found a list of irregular verbs on the webside hpp://IMG_0091.thumb.JPG.1fa9773c6dacd4726230ae39a5eda738.JPG.htm.

Kind regards.

We do not currently have an app for mobile. But we plan to create one in the future.

As for your second suggestion, the link does not work. Please could you clarify?

Hello and thank you for your suggestion.

I personally feel that the phonetic transcription at the level where we're teaching these verbs (Upper Elementary) can be more of a hindrance than help. Instead, I would prefer the students to use the voice recording we've provided to make sure they learn the correct pronunciation.

Hi Miss Minoo, thanks for the reply. I will soon start with the intermediate course, and so, liked to know at which part of the speech organ the consonants, vowel and diphthong are produced. Those phonetic lists would help me much faster when taken through.
Of course, I have to say/ admit that I am able to read ‘Better English Pronunciation’ by J.D.O’Conner. Kind regards.

Yes, Mr O'Connor's book is definitely a good source. I can also recommend the series produced by the University of British Columbia. Although they teach American English, most of it will be useful for you. Here is their introduction to consonants: https://youtu.be/dfoRdKuPF9I
