Phonics is the new buzz word in Schools of Tamil Nadu. Very lengthy training sessions have been given to the language teachers of the state.
Phonics is a methodology, through which pupils are trained to get phonemic awareness. It is a customary practice to introduce the English alphabet as ABC, but it is not fruitful practice in the long run.
Phonics propounds a theory of introducing the sounds of the letters, in another word phonographs. The days of teaching ABC are over! Teach sounds instead.
