About the Color Vowel Chart

The Color Vowel Chart is a pronunciation tool for teaching and learning English. This tool enables teachers and learners to talk easily and accurately about the key sounds of English without the use of phonetic symbols. Instead of phonetic symbols, the Chart uses colors and key words to represent the vowel sounds of English. This provides students and teachers with an easy way to describe and practice spoken English at the word level and at the phrase level.

When combined with the teaching techniques outlined here, the Chart provides an effective approach to teaching spoken English. The Chart will help you easily incorporate pronunciation into all of your classes so that your students can improve their comprehension and use of spoken English.
