“His confidence has really improved, and he is always trying to read words that he sees around him in his everyday life.”
One of our learners is in his 30s and had been trying to learn to read properly for about 20 years after leaving school. When he arrived in our class, he was started on the letter recognition section of ReadingWise English before moving on to the phonics section. He was able to grasp the lessons on the computer very quickly.
Within a few weeks, he was able to break down words and sound them out. He was able to recognise vowel and consonants and apply them accordingly, to read words and then simple sentences. By using the program, he is now able to read words out of context. More importantly, his confidence has really improved, and he is always trying to read words that he sees around him in his everyday life. He is now literate enough to gain employment.
