Sounds Right is the British Council's first pronunciation chart for learners and teachers worldwide. This app is for the iPad.


  • Pure vowels are arranged the same way as in the IPA chart: according to mouth shape (left to right, lips wide / round - top to bottom, jaw closed / open).
  • Diphthongs are grouped in rows according to their second sound.

We hope you enjoy using this chart. Please leave a message below if you have any comments or ideas for future versions.

You can read more about the app and read reviews on the iTunes Preview Page.


Hi Experts,

I just want to download this useful app to my IPhone, but it seems that only run in Ipad. Is it possible to run in IPhone7? Thanks a lot!

the app is not available on Android.

Hello dear,
I wonder if there is an app like Which compatible for iPhone, please.

it is very good!

There is any app for androids.please tell me.

Thanks ... Useful ... But, why do the sounds t, w and j have the e sound added?

Hello PaulBurgin,

The sound that is 'added' here is not 'e' but a schwa sound /Ə/. In a sense you are correct - it is added. The problem is that without this, it becomes very hard for learners to hear the sounds. For example, the difference between /p/ and /b/ in isolation is very hard to distinguish, but as /pƏ/ and /bƏ/ it becomes much easier. So the addition of a neutral vowel is really an issue of practicality. The goal of LearnEnglish is to help learners of the language, after all.

Thanks for the question.

Best wishes,


The LearnEnglish Team

it is so good. thanks a lot
