OUR LITERACY workshops & Courses For Parents
Teaching students to learn how to read and spell the English language properly - meaning without asking the learners to memorize words, is complex and not easy because English is a complex language. When we learn English, we are learning not one, but three languages and more—each with its own phonology, structure, rule, strategy, and technique.
With close to a million words and counting and has the largest vocabulary and it is still growing, the English language has many variants and has one of the most complex alphabetic orthographies. Therefore, the training, workshops, and courses to learn the English language even for teachers must be divided into different levels so that it will not be too overwhelming for the participants.
a. Multisensory Reading System (MRS) Blended Online Self-Learning Literacy Courses for Parents/Guardians
If your child is struggling to read and spell or cannot read and you do not have the literacy help and resources for your child's need, or you simply want to teach your own child to read and spell the proper way, these literacy courses would be your best option. While we cannot guarantee how far you can learn from us because of the complexity of the language, our basic literacy courses are a good start for you and you can apply the skills that you will learn from us to your struggling child anytime - in the comfort of your own home!
b. Parent/Guardian on-site Information Workshop -- soon to be offered
c. How Can You Help Your Child Accelerate His Early Literacy Skills
Formerly: How Can You Help Your Child Learn to Read and Get Him Interested in Reading
