  • To know the letter sounds of the english alphabet


Have you ever met someone who really loved to read and who knew how to help others read in a fun and exciting way?

Wouldn't it be so fun if children loved to read more than just what they have to for school? 

The goal of these set of lessons is to share my excitement with learning how to sound out the letter sounds in words and combine them. Let's start this journey together.

Even if you are an adult and you want to learn how to read simple english words then this can be for you as well.

The intention of this course is to practice the methods as taught in the book Titled Teach your Child to read in 100 easy lessons by Mr. Engelmann et al. (2011). 

I fell in love with this method as I thought it was an incredible direct method of showing a child how to sound out letters and combine them together. 

The passion for learning and sharing how to read comes from the desire to help us all work together to raise our awareness which I have been inspired by reading the work of Bob Proctor who suggests we get in the habit of study as it helps to raise our understanding, thus, if children learn their letter sounds and how to blend them, they can start their wonderful journey of study and learning!

The process of learning to read can be made more enjoyable if we combine it with music and fun and that is the goal here.

You can also feel free to pause the video and make a prediction of the words before I start as well.

The hope is that children who want to learn how to read can follow along and enjoy the background music as well which was created using the MPC Software and using loop samples from LoopCloud, here is a list of the loopcloud samples used:

Who this course is for:

  • Anyone who would like to learn how to read english

If you were to ask me about myself, I would love to say that I am a part of Udemy to learn and share the journey.  Currently I am in love with Akai's MPC Studio MK2 and the MPC Software.  I also am passionate about studying success and prosperity (Such as the writings of authors like  Wallace D. Wattles, Napoleon Hill, & Bob Proctor).  I also wish to learn how to help inspire children to learn how to read and enjoy the process of reading and studying, especially how to live at their highest potential.
