I was bowled over. The system of reading takes the teaching off into another dimension. It is logical, systematic and watertight. The magic for me is the direct link to spelling and writing.
SRS code has given me the tool I need to help learners master the English language. It has helped me understand that although we have a difficult written language, with clear steps and a structure, I can teach our language in a clear way which students can understand.
I have learned so much in these five days. Before this course I felt I did not have the tools to help my students. Thank you.
I have enjoyed it very much and it gives me the best possible chance to make a difference to lost lives.
I am very excited about the SRS as it makes me realise that students have been faced with an overwhelming task when learning to read and spell. This makes sense and means that rather than struggling to learn lists of hundreds of words, they decode the sounds and focus on identifying the tricky bit, the multiple spellings of a sound and spellings that represent more than one sound.
