Reading skill:

Reading is also the language skill which is easiest to keep up making reading an enjoyable activity is a very important part of the language learning experience.

Aproaches to reading:

Many five to ten yeras old are in the process of learning to read in their own language. There are a number of different ways to approach the introduction of reading in a foreign language:

- Phonics: This approach is based on letters and sounds: we teach the pupils the letters of the alphabet and the combination between them, we show them how to pronounce some of words

- Look and say: This approach is based on words and phrases, and makes a lot of use of flashcards: it is very usual to start by teahing everyday words which are already familiar to the children, the teacher shows them the word and says it while she is pointing to the object. Finally the repeat the word; matching words and pictures, pointing to the object on the card, guessing which card Teddy has picked out of the hat, this approach encourages recognition of a range of words and phrases before reading a test

- Whole sentence reading: here the teacher reaches recognition of whole phrases and sentences which have meaning in themselves: the words are not presented in isolation, but as whole phrases or sentences

- Language experience approach: this approach to reading is based on the child´s spoken language: the teacher writes down a sentence for the child to read which is based on what the child has said
