The Importance of Teaching Phonics for Children and its method

Gabriel Allison

Phonics has been sweeping the EFL field, and with good reason. Phonics does more than teach the letters of the alphabet; it introduces proper pronunciation and allows students to identify troublesome English rules early in their education. In addition to teaching the rules of proper pronunciation, phonics teaches the exceptions to those rules. Phonics provides young learners with an advantage over students who enter the English classroom cold. The purpose of this presentation is to illustrate the advantages of teaching phonics for young learners while detailing how to keep in interesting and entertaining.
