    Hey dude! Get a load of these websites.

    Phonetics: The sounds of American English
    Pronouncing English - Basic English, Lesson 7 (no diagram, it's pretty helpful though)
    Sounds of English

    Check this out as well!

    http://www.usingenglish.com/forum/pr...l-diagram.html

    I Hope this helps
    By the way, please click *LIKE* if you find this helpful. I like being liked.
    [PS: Since you're an English teacher, I think it'd work better if you can demonstrate how you make each sounds with diagram.)(And you know this, you'll make it perfect!) Happy Teaching!

    Here's an IPA page.

    IPA charts with only the English language symbols are also easily found.

    Well, those are American English phonetics website. ( I prefer American English, It sounds relaxing and I like the rhotic pronunciation)
    Why didn't I think of that? IPA is far better than non-IPA chart.( I prefer
    non-IPA chart though.)
    I bookmarked a British English chart website before I'd have my computer formatted. But now it's gone. or I would have shared here.
    Thank you for helping him. ( Whoops! I clicked wrong button. I just gave you a LIKE. but i already unliked it.

    Well, I'll try answering your question. But my answer isn't always right as I'm not a native speaker.
