Hai Jean:

Have done phonology as a course in both my bachelors and masters. Two
techniques I used: one is to get a verbal description. For example-
the sound 'O' is like a sprouted bean and the diph thong ei is a
simple combination of small letter e and caps I. The second technique
is to make the shapes using thermocoal sheets (cutting them to make
the shape of various phonemic symbols). This is much easier to learn.
If people can understand syllabols, which I am sure they do, it would
be possible to lay the stress mark. I hope this goes at least to some
extent in clarifying your question.
