THE LETTER SOUNDS IN THE PHONICS ALPHABET

The phonics alphabet is just a posh way of saying. “This is the sound that the letter makes rather than the name of the letter” We teach kids the letters phonetically first because it is easier to remember “The letter a” rather than “Ay says a”…. yes it’s challenging to write this stuff down!

Here is a high energy example – but beware, some of the letters are prounced as bu, du, pu, cu etc. The correct way to pronounce them is softer and more breathy (as in the first video). This video courtesy of www.genkienglish.net
