Why Buy THIS Phonics Course?
You will find that this course will extend your knowledge and understanding of phonics. It includes graphemes not included in other courses. It will help non-English students with spoken English. There is more depth of knowledge in this one eBook than you could hope to find in attending a one-off phonics training course. The ability to read any word in English is condensed into just 70 Modules (A4 pages). This course can be taught as quickly as the retention of the students allows. By the end of Module 39, students will have had a thorough grounding in reading. This is only possible because of 10 years of close observation and study of the use of the English language. By the end of the course, the student should have a clear understanding of how words work and be able to read any English word, even though they may not have heard the word spoken before.
The words have been organised with the students ease of understanding in mind. Eg. The well accepted Alpha to Omega phonics course (third edition) contains a group of words spelt ‘ei’ saying ‘ay’. The words sovereign and foreign have surprisingly been included alongside eight and reign even though they both have different pronunciations. (NO part of these words says ‘ay’. In Practice Reading & Speaking, the word ‘sovereign’ is included with the ‘i’ sound ‘eig’ saying ‘i’ as in ‘ink’. The word ‘foreign’ is taught with the ‘er’ sound as in ‘io’ saying ‘region’. Clarity and precision with how spelling relates to sound was extremely important to the author.
After purchasing the Practice Reading and Speaking eBook, you will be given a link to a video that demonstrates the precise pronunciation of the sounds heard in English. A second group of links are to websites that will pronounce words, phrases, sentences or paragraphs in either a British English or American English accent.
