    Learn IPA

    What is a website is good for learning IPA. Does http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help:IPA seem like it gives correct IPA pronounciation?

    IPA can't help to learn a correct pronunciation, you have to listen natives speaking.

    I beg to differ. I think it can help quite a lot.
    Say, the word "foreigner" just how exactly were we, the ESL students, to know how to read it if it wasn't for the IPA transcription in the dictionary?
    Obviously, IPA on its own, is not going to make you lose the accent, or sound like a native speaker, but it is going to help to some extend. Then again, I don't really believe in being able to lose your accent fully, unless you're incredibly talented phoneticswise.

    I for one didn't find the way ɨ = ы is recorded there. ( Maybe it's because it is recorded by native English speaker, guided by "as 'e' in roses" and ended up actually with " corresponds to unstressed [ɪ] in other dialects" ) It really sounds more like ɪ.
