It can be used for students who cannot read at all and for students who cannot cope with reading at speed. It is designed for adult learners of English who already have a concept of reading: those who can read and write in a linear phonetic language such as Arabic or Farsi, and those who are conversant with pictographic languages such as Mandarin or Cantonese. However, it can also be used with students who have yet to gain a concept of reading. Fast Track to Reading can be used before starting a course where reading is an integral element, or as a reading element in parallel with a simple starter-level course. In mixed ability classes where only some students are unfamiliar with the English alphabet, the programme can be used for self-study outside class.
Key Features * Designed to facilitate decoding of Roman script * For students who are learning to read in English and for students who cannot cope with reading at speed * Accelerates learning in a programmed manner * Can be used in parallel with a simple starter level English course * Contains global reading to enhance relevance and motivation * Audio CD for further self-study or homework * Comprehensive teaching notes Contents include: * short vowels and consonants, * two letter representing one sound, * long vowels, * consonant clusters, * vowel + consonant + vowel, * the names of the letters, * long vowels and their relation to consonants, * alternative vowel sounds for the same spelling, * silent letters Fast Track to Reading - Arabic Notes pdf file (ISBN: 9781859645130 - When referring to this item please quote our stock ID: 18583)
