IPA vowels

Just thought I'd create a little entry for anyone that's interested in Phonetics and vowels on what I think is an easy way to learn vowels..

The trick I was taught for the vowels is as follows, and the nice thing is it corresponds with the vowel going high to low
front vowels:
Wee Willy Ate Seven Apples
/i/ /ı/ /e/ /ε/ /æ/
back vowels:
Who would  go call  father
/u/     /ʊ/     /o/  /ɔ/  /a/

Hope that helps everyone out!!
