Basic English Group in November

November, 3 – Students of all generations attend the Basic English lessons in Dnipro Window on America center at the DOUNB Library. The Group was founded as a training site for people who never studied English or for those who need to return to the basics of the language.
This afternoon the group learned the rules of vowels reading according to the syllable type. We practiced reading clusters of words to obtain the proper articulation speed.
The practice of short/long vowel and voiced/unvoiced consonant in pairs was also very useful for the students. The sight words charts were introduced to accelerate the reading skills. The students were encouraged to learn the meaning of the words at home.
All the participants found the session educational and helpful.
Number of participants – 61 persons.
