This course will focus on correct pronunciation of English, with a native teacher.
The children will learn simple everyday vocabulary in different scenario and understand basic conversation including greetings, and response to basic questions. It will also include everyday adjectives, numbers up to 20 and colours.
We will also use Letters and Sounds phase 2 (initial letter sounds, including ch,sh,th and ph as well as end sound ck), part of the Early Years curriculum in the UK.
We will begin to segment words to enable reading and then spelling of simple cvc words, and longer words as appropriate.
Depending on progress, the lesson may move on to Letters and Sounds phase 3 which includes a range of vowel-blends and beginning to read stories.
By the end of the course, the children should be able to decode many straightforward English words, even if they do not understand them, including the first 100 High Frequency words.
Most of the course will be aural based and delivered through fun songs, games and stories – some on screen and some ‘at home’ (eg. ‘find something blue)
Above all, the children will gain the confidence to try using the language in a happy, safe learning environment.
