Does this eLearning Course use Phonics?
Absolutely not. It is NOT Phonics. Phonics teaches the sounds that letters make, which is very confusing because many letters in the English Language make multiple sounds. Unlike Phonics, NEEPO is 100% consistent and regular, making it easy to read English in order to speak it with correct pronunciation, resulting in little or no accent.
Speak English With NEEPO teaches the sounds of English with a corresponding symbol and the combination sounds of English with their corresponding symbol. It DOES NOT teach the sounds that letters make, which is what Phonics does. Phonics does not have the same miraculous effect or results that NEEPO (New English Phonetic Orthography) produces.
NEEPO is a totally different methodology than Phonics.
Will Speak English With NEEPO confuse learners in regards to correct spelling of traditional English?
In case studies, NEEPO has been shown to help learners transition to the reading and spelling of traditional English. In no way has it ever shown that it confuses learners. Traditional English is displayed beside the NEEPO text for easy reference and association.
Is the NEEPO methodology similar to other phonetic methodologies, such as the International Phonetic Alphabet, that are available and used in the teaching of English speaking?
No, not at all. It is a totally new and unique phonetic method that is entirely different from all other phonetic methodologies used in the teaching of English speaking.
First of all, it is 100% regular and consistent in its use and application. It uses only the pure English alphabet, and there are no confusing symbols. It is designed for educational purposes for ages 7 to adult.
Can an ESL teacher who wants to be a facilitator of Speak English With NEEPO integrate regular classroom materials into the content to enhance subject matter?
Of course, we encourage ESL teachers to do this. It may take a little longer for the learner to complete.
Can I cancel my subscription at any time and not be charged for any further payments for myself or my students?
Yes, you may cancel your subscription at any time and not be charged for any further payments.
How many learners can take the eLearning course in the same room at the same time?
You can enroll as many learners as you can accommodate. They all can be speakers of different languages. You may assign homework where they can practice speaking on Modules and Sections you were working on in class to provide more practice time. Remember, the more they practice, the better English speakers they become.
