12 Sound English books meet the need to provide adults who are new to Australian English with suitable reading material. Although there are many excellent resources available for children, there is a shortage of resources that:
• have high quality, simple reading material that is of interest to adults
• support learners as they learn the sounds used in Australian pronunciation
• present spelling choices in a carefully structured, easy-to-follow manner.
The Level 1 and Level 2 books have been structured to introduce the 44 phonemes (phonics) of Australian English.
Taken in numerical order, each book in Levels 1 and 2 introduces new phonemes, and reinforces both the phonemes and words used in earlier books.
The text in Level 2 books is more complex than that used in Level 1.
All books have detailed illustrations in full colour to assist with comprehension of the text.
Each book includes extensive teaching notes and ideas to assist volunteer tutors.
The twenty books in Level 2 introduce the sounds (phonemes) and their spelling choices (graphemes) not covered in Level 1. Readers can continue to gain confidence by building upon words that were introduced in earlier stories.
The characters in Level 2 books include teenagers, families, workers and Indigenous people, along with refugees and other new arrivals to Australia.
Topics include work-related issues including health and safety, and the need for training.
Several stories focus on finding suitable accommodation. Others feature food, music, relationships and learning to drive. Humour, of course, is frequently present. (ISBN: 9781921539411 - When referring to this item please quote our stock ID: 24814)
