Some methods erroneously teach a learner to memorize words and sentences and prevent them from reading unknown words. Once a learner has gone through our reading program, he/she can read ANYTHING and it is possible that the learner’s reading ability is superior to that of his/her comprehension. It means the learner may be able to read e.g. “Scintillate, scintillate globular vivific”, fluently without understanding it. But the chances are that he/she will understand “Twinkle, twinkle, little star”.
Some methods erroneously teach a learner to sound out words singularly, e.g. c‐a‐t. Firstly, the learner’s ear cannot hear (most of the times) the word says ‘cat’ and will say e.g. ‘foot’. Secondly, this teaches the eye to read back and forth, causing a jerky eye movement and there is not a fluency with the eyes. On our reading program the learner is taught to LOOK and READ sounds combined and not to read or sound them singularly, for example “ca‐t” and NOT “c‐a‐t”.
The other methods do not necessarily work for everybody. Our method works for EVERYBODY (from your slow, average to your bright learner as well as adults). A lady of 34 years of age, who has brain damage, as well as a man of 27 years, who had dyslexia, was taught on our programs. Even a Down’s Syndrome girl was helped on our method. Should someone battle with our reading programs, something else might need to be attended to (e.g. testing their eyes and hearing, etc.)
