Our Phonics program will enable your child to build the foundation required to become a fluent English reader and speller. Different combinations (including blends, digraphs, and letter sounds) are taught, read, and spelled throughout the course. A strong emphasis will be placed on pronunciation to ensure your child pronounces words with native-level clarity. Towards the end of our program, your child will have developed a strong foundation in the English language with solid reading, spelling, and pronunciation skills.

What is Phonics?

Phonics is a system of relationships between letters and sounds in a language. It is vital that students remember the sound of each letter so that they can blend them to pronounce words
