In this episode we continue our discussion from the previous one, where we spoke about English vowels, and now look at the consonants.  We go through each of the consonants, discussing how they are produced, giving example words and offering some tips for remembering the symbols. We finish off with practical implications, so the episode should hopefully be useful for all those teachers who’d like to be better able to teach pronunciation.
