Why Students Need Stareway To Spelling
The problem many a child and adult face is that although they may be fluent English speakers, the writing and spelling of English is very challenging. That is because the spelling and pronunciation of English is very complex.
There are only 26 letters in the English alphabet, but there are 44 different sounds the alphabet can produce. These 44 different sounds, have 176 different ways they are commonly spelt. In total, there are an astonishing 1,120 different letter combinations for spelling these sounds.
If you compare English to Italian, Italian only has 25 different sounds with only 33 ways to spell those sounds. This makes it far easier for weak readers or dyslexic Italian speakers to learn to read the language.
As you can see by the numbers, with so many different sounds, letter combinations and pronunciation, for weak readers or dyslexic English speakers there any many more pitfalls.
