If learners have access to a computer outside class, they can use the chart together with a dictionary to check the pronunciation of new words they meet in their own reading. This is particularly useful for learners who are not yet fully familiar with all the sounds on the chart.
Encourage your learners to record the pronunciation of new words they meet, both in and out of class, in their vocabulary notebooks.
If you have an electronic Interactive Whiteboard, or a computer with a data projector, the phonemic chart can be used in class to recycle and reinforce recently learned vocabulary, at the same time as revising the phonemic symbols.
All these activities assume that learners have had at least some initial introduction to the phonemic alphabet.
