Ultimate Vocabulary interviewed Chris Williams, an ESL teacher in Thailand who's developed his own website with resources and free e-books to teach business English, as well as the Fobble Phonics teaching system to instruct children to read and write quickly. The interview revolved around Williams' strategy to bring English speakers and students together using innovative strategies to help students learn English and join the 21st century workforce.

In his discussion with the Ultimate Vocabulary editor, Williams discussed how his years of experience in the IT and business industry helped him meet the needs of ESL students. According to Williams, he started out teaching people to use complex business systems through a process known as role-based training, which teaches users the basics of an interface and how to perform their job rather than every aspect of the software.

Williams then applied this strategy to teaching business English by teaching students how to perform their jobs in English by providing many examples within a very limited subject area specifically related to their task.

Another technique Williams shared with Ultimate Vocabulary readers is his "Fobble Phonics" system to teach younger children how to speak and read English. He developed this system after realizing the importance of phonics in teaching children, and based his system on the UK government guidelines. The concept for his Fobble Phonics came from the game Scrabble. Rather than using letters, he made tiles with phonic sounds like "ai" and recorded the sounds. Students may touch and move any tiles, which produce the phonic sound and may be combined to build words.

His Fobble Phonics program current runs online and on Android devices, and he hopes to find investors to develop a website and payment system to host it in the future.

While phonics is the relationship between letters and sounds, it makes it possible for children to learn new words. Over time, the spelling, sound and meaning of words become one in memory, and phonics contributes to fluency in a language through its effect on vocabulary.

Williams' work with ESL students in Thailand helps to establish this pathway and connection, and the Ultimate Vocabulary editor added that the Ultimate Vocabulary software can be the "next step to build your vocabulary by providing every user with their own personal computer tutor to learn powerful vocabulary."
