PHONICS CLASSES

To develop an interest in the English alphabetic code through actions, songs and illustrated books in a step-by-step and multi-sensory manner, we have trained experienced teachers who have qualified for the Phonics Teacher Training Course

Why online phonics classes for kids?

  • Fluency in reading, writing, comprehension, spelling skills and word recognition
    The child communicates better with their peers, teachers and the outside world. Over time, they start reading age-appropriate books, which would open them up to a world of imagination and creativity.
  • Vocabulary-building
    The child learns about different words to be used in different situations, which will gain a competitive advantage in spelling and vocabulary competitions in the future. Furthermore, they will inculcate a love for reading, writing and expressing their emotions using the right words.
  • Comprehension skills
    With developed communication skills, the child understands what they are reading and writing and can construct appropriate and straightforward sentences. Contrary to popular belief, comprehension skills are essential in several languages and fine arts sectors. As they grow older, they can effectively understand, process and communicate mathematical, scientific and social content.
  • Spelling skills
    In the modern world, spelling skills remain crucial to stay ahead in the competitive world. Our faculty teaches the child to spell accurately using phonetics, which helps them write correct words and sentences.
  • Pronunciation
    We all want our children to be expert communicators with fine reading and spelling skills. To achieve that, we use phonetics and other techniques to correct the child’s pronunciation.

What are the methodologies for phonetics course online?

We use different techniques such as flashcards, worksheets, rhymes, stories and activities to teach the child. We believe in an open-ended discussion session for the online phonetics class, where children can express their strengths and weaknesses through their performance.
