A New Way to Learn to Read English By Narda Pitkethly
Narda Pitkethly created a system that simplifies learning how to read. Watch this video to understand this unique system and how it reduces illiteracy and many of its negative consequences. Narda Pitkethly created this system after she moved to Japan and discovered a similar method called Hiranga, created by the Japanese. Through their approach, Narda learned to read Japanese in a week. Within three months, her comprehension allowed her to communicate freely in her home city of Fukuoka.
Another reason she created this English learning system was when her daughter was identified as a challenged reader in the first grade. Narda discovered that English is one of the hardest languages in the world to learn to read, even for native speakers. Narda analyzed the English alphabet to understand why it is so difficult (1 in 4 children grow up without learning to read). She then organized the English alphabet the same way the Japanese organized their Hiragana characters. Narda reveals an approach to the English language you have never seen before. A must-watch for ESL teachers and those who are teaching students with various learning challenges.
