These phonemes are part of the phonetic chart that is used to describe the sounds of many languages. They have been established by the International Phonetic Association (IPA). For more information about the IPA and their work visit IPA's official web page.

Once you visit this website, you have to summarize what the IPA is and write the summary on your blog.You can use the 'Rubric to assess a blog post'

Apart from this, you can record yourselves practising the sounds and you can upload the video to your blog. You can use the 'Rubric to assess a podcast'
