To sound proficient in any language one needs to understand the rules of grammar including proper pronunciation and recognition of punctuation marks. One also needs to understand how syllables of words are broken down and where proper emphasis should be placed on the word. It is beneficial to not just read words but also to read thoughts. This will aid one as they prepare to speak publicly and communicate the information and thoughts in a fluent way.
Phonics is the ability to learn the proper pronunciation of all words by sounding out the vowel sounds and understanding when a letter should have a short sound or a long sound. Also important is understanding which syllable(s) of the word should be accented. When someone learns to read in this way, they will be able to read much more fluently and be able to sight read.
I am able to assist one in learning to read well by teaching how to sound vowel sounds out, break down syllables and recognizing proper punctuation so that sentences flow more freely.
