This morning, we were watching some YouTube after breakfast, and we stumbled upon a nice phonetics music video. Phonetics are a linguistic term for the study of the sounds of speech. However, this video isn’t technical. It has been made for children to learn from. It has got a nice song to sing along to, simple animations and some basic vocabulary.
As well as the video been useful, it’s also super popular around the world. On the date, we saw it (29/8/17) the view count was over 475million. Wowzers, that’s a lot of views.
While the English alphabet has 26 letters, each letter can be pronounced in two ways. So in this video, you can learn or practice 52 different individual letter sounds, all in one video, pretty cool, huh? In UK schools, phonetic songs are quite popular for teaching children as they make learning the sounds quite easy and fun.
