Phonemes are general sound categories that are distinctive in the language. For example, the /b/ and /p/ are considered different sounds in English - bat is a distinctly different word from pat - but this sound contrast may not be true in other languages. Learners will have difficulty with how English phonemes sound in particular contexts, which is where phonetics knowledge will be helpful for teachers.
