Online Pronunciation practice

Most good dictionaries include the phonemic pronunciation of words, this is the way words sound when spoken in English. The phonemic pronunciation chart is explained here

When using a printed dictionary or an online dictionary such as Macmillan dictionary the word will have its phonemic pronunciation displayed using the phonemic symbols. It is good practice to use an online dictionary and listen to the sound of the word, speak the word, then listen again to see if your pronunciation is accurate.
