How Important is to teach Phonics?

Phonics is a branch of linguistics , where sounds and physical properties of human speech sounds are studied. Acoustics reading is very important in any child education. It is not uncommon to find parents who question the importance of phonics reading education of their children. Such parents believe that children will naturally manage the various sounds of human speech as the ability to use language is innate in every human being. Their look may seem plausible , but they are not actually true.

People may be staggered that a course in pronunciation and speech training me hardly ever, if refer to the phonetic alphabet. This is because I believe that the phonetic alphabet has little impact on improving pronunciation today.


The major reason for learning the phonetic alphabet so that you can look up words in the dictionary and know their pronunciation by reading the phonetic script. But today, pronouncing dictionaries come with CD-’s with every record pronunciation dictionaries online and also you can listen to pronunciations, generally with both American and British pronunciationns.

If you experience problems listening to the pronunciation of the word and are really concerned about it, you can always return to the phonetic alphabet key at the beginning of the dictionary and figure it out. There is no reason to take over space in your head with the phonetic alphabet chart.

It is much more important (and more fun) to learn pronunciation through fine-tune your listening and production skills. Although not important for you to learn the phonetic alphabet coach should know like the back of his / her hand so that she can make those sounds come to life and allow you to hear and understand the different nuances of sound. Make sure he / she has experience in both speech and language learning and linguistics.
