Online phonetics resources Page maintained by Jennifer Smith ( Last revision and link check: August 2016 This is a list of web sites that might be useful in an introductory phonetics course for classroom demos or homework assignments; most of these sites include audio, images, or interactive material.

Phonetics: Beats and Rhythm –[Multimedia-English] One of the things that makes English difficult to understand for foreign students is its particular rhythm. Many languages are syllabic, that means that every syllable takes the same amount of time to pronounce.

English is different, we don't care about syllables, we don't even care about words, it's all about beats (sound units). Every beat takes the same amount of time to pronounce. A beat may have one syllable, ten syllables, one word or five words, but it still takes the same amount of time (more or less).
