Phonics for Adult learners.
 
A big hello to all you teachers out there,
First, I would like to thank all the teachers who gave me their suggestions the last time I asked for help. Today, I am seeking  your expertise in teaching phonics to adults. I have been given the task of teaching a group of illiterate Romanian gypsies of varying ages who consequently don ´t speak a word of English. The primary school where their children go to have set up this class to help them. The room I have been given to teach in at the Sure Start Centre hasn ´t got a smart board or access to the internet. I could use my laptop, but that wouldn ´t be practical. I need varying activities for this course, so any help with ideas to teach this group would be appreciated. 
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Elle

The Usborne phonics readers books (set of 12) are great - I know they ´re very childish but each book focuses on just a few key sounds, and there ´s lots of rhyme.

Dear Elle81,

 
I have submitted a Post which is on ESLP in "Hot Topics", ´Teaching English to University Students´, by T. Abdellah. The second part of my post, PRONUNCIATION, is related to correcting mispronunciation of the Student. It may be of some slight help to you.

Thank you, Lynne!

Thank you, Esther!

Several unpleasant things happened in my life, and I have been ´not very well! ´

I am not yet 100% but I decided to renew my connection with ESLP, because it is such a wonderful, heart-warming community.
I am still teaching hard ... (English and other languages), private, voluntary, classes, one-to-one, face-to-face, Skype, etc. Some of my students are still friends after 25 years. That ´s REALLY nice!
It ´s lovely ´to see you ´ again ... I hope that we can continue our friendships. I will try to submit some more Worksheets for others to use, because I have several thousands going to waste. But you know me ... ever the Perfectionist.
´Bye, Lynne.
´Bye, Esther.
Take care of yourselves.
Les
