Learning the English language is not easy, and coping with the great gap between spelling and pronunciation in English is a hard task. Aimed at making learning fun and easy, the C.O.M Method for Acquiring Reading Skills in English by author Anat Hirsch is published to assist children as they master their skills in English.
Recognizing the gap between spelling and pronunciation in English, the C.O.M Method for Acquiring Reading Skills in English helps the pupils overcome that difficulty. In this informative book, readers will learn the ways to do it—the pupil has to learn by heart only fifteen basic words (the pronouns and their auxiliary verbs in the present tense and a few prepositions). The texts include these basic words and words which are pronounced exactly as they are written. Through this, the pupil will boost his self-confidence, making him ready to learn the phonological patterns. After each group of patterns, the pupil reads sentences and stories. A pattern is never used in the texts unless it was already taught in one of the previous sections. The pupil is always familiar with what he has to read; he gets used to “translating” words into phonological models, with or without sound deviation(s).
As the readers delve deeper into the book, they will learn more about Control-Obsession-Mastery method and will find it very enriching and pleasurable.
C. O. M Method for Acquiring Reading Skills in English will be featured at this year’s Frankfurt International Book Fair in Frankfurt, Germany on October 6 to 10, 2010. For more information, log on to Xlibris.com.
