Phonics

Different from most of the English centers in Hong Kong, we aim at teaching children one new concept each class to ensure they learn at the most efficient and optimal pace.

We guarantee progress and upon completion after 3 years, they will be able to read and spell over 90% of the words in daily life without any assistance.

Our Phonics curriculum focuses on both English reading and spelling. The course is suitable for kindergarten to primary level learners, whereas the golden period to start learning Phonics would be 3 to 4 years old. Along with our sound based learning, young learners can do blending and decoding of vocabulary efficiently.

There are 8 stages from fundamental single sound-learning (e.g. a, e, i, o, u, etc.) to advance sound- learning (e.g. ch, oo, aw, igh, air, etc.), and from reading letters, words and finally to sentences. In general, it takes around three months to progress to a new stage.

 

By finishing all stages of phonics, learners would be able to read and spell 80-90% of children daily English vocabulary, yet the same decoding method in reading and spelling can be carried on in their later lives. Also, kids have more confidence in using English as medium of language with an earlier exposure. It is a lifetime benefit for children who have learnt Phonics when they were young as they tend to show better English usage in primary or grade schools.

Currently, we are providing free assessment and consultation on Phonics for parents to understand their children’s past English learning progress, and also to make sure that we can provide the most efficient Phonics lessons to our students.
