A few words about the course

The "Phonics Readers" course for practising reading skills is designed for 6 - 12 lessons and is intended for children aged 6-10. It is perfect for the children  who want to read and understand engaging  stories in English.

Why do we need reading skills? Books help us to learn about the world, broaden our vocabulary, develop our thinking and get more interested in studying. And it all happens in English. It is hard to argue with the fact that studying at school is impossible without being able to read and understand the sense of what has been read. This is the exact reason why reading books will not only improve English skills, but will also improve overall performance at school. 



The absolute advantage of the course is that it is based on stories written in contemporary English. Each lesson is a new story but with familiar characters. Children not only revise letters, but also sounds and they immediately put everything into practice. 



All lessons take place on an engaging interactive platform.

Lessons start with a warm-up and general question. Next step is introducing new sounds through a video with further repetition. Then goes practice which includes reading a story, discussing bright illustrations and simultaneous development of reading and speaking skills. And the final step is to check how well children have understood what has been read. As a home task we can give a video story narrated by native speakers. 


You are not going to have to buy any books or print anything out, all the materials are on the platform. Students can revise everything and do their home tasks in the personal account. Furthermore, the platform has a built-in voiced dictionary which allows to easliy translate difficult words and hear the correct pronunciation. 



Reading in English is challenging for children as there is no universal rule which can be applied in all occasions. There are diphthongs and letter combinations which act differently in different words. 




This course allows to reduce anxiety while learning to read with the help of different characters that will be found in different stories, and with the help of training videos that will rhythmically reproduce the necessary sounds with examples. The child will only need to consolidate and practice reading skills in a group of their peers.

 

After completing the course your child will

- grow fond of reading in contemporary English  

- learn and revise reading rules

- learnt to understand nd analyse what has been read

- broaden their vocabulary

- improve their performance at shool
