Spoken English / Phonetic chart Hello Everyone 

I hope you are having a nice day/night

Well Here's My situation :


Im Actually suffering alot literally with phonetic chart

Im not sure about others but for me  it seems like the hardest thing  ever 

I've been struggling with it aloot without any good results at the end 

Im studying it as a field in university 

Although all my hard efforts i still can't get
it done 

If i get the spelling wrong ... the sound changes and everything becomes wrong

So please i need some help or just an advice on how to learn it fast  or just the right way to do so 

I'll appreciate it 

Thank you

Not sure what you mean by phonetic chart, but just thought I'd say that spelling in English isn't very logical. English has so many influences from other languages (and due to this, lots of non-English sounds that are now considered English) that it becomes an almost impossible task trying to pronounce new words. It's a lot of trial and error and unfortunately you'll just have to learn exception after exception after exception.

Sorry I can't help you further, but even natives have trouble saying new words correctly.

You could practice by starting a discussion in which contributors can only write in phonemes. We did this here a couple of years ago and it was fun.
