Alpha-Phonics Audio Lessons and pronunciation 2-CD Set: Samuel L. Blumenfeld speaks all the lessons in his celebrated book: Alpha-Phonics A Primer for Beginning readers which has been used by hundreds of thousands for over 30 years. On this 2-CD set Sam speaks all the lesson material, lesson by lesson. In the process he pronounces all words/sounds that are key to the student learning how to sound out the words he/she is attempting reading, which is the key to learn to read. What the parent-teacher gets on these 2 CD's, in effect, is the INSTRUCTIONS that are printed in Sam's book Alpha-Phonics. And they are in SOUND. The parent who has any difficulties or questions about pronouncing the sounds being taught to her student will find the CD's an excellent guide to the pronunciation she is teaching the student. These CD's are reproductions of audio tapes made many years ago so are not as perfect as would be the case if recorded today on more modern equipment. But they have done a good job of helping many parents and teachers over the years. One of the main reasons we have kept this sound track is that it includes the Introductory Information spoken by Sam. This is very interesting and important information, especially for the parent/teacher. Included by Sam are: 1.) Our Alphabetic System: its history and development , 2.) Teaching The Alphabet, 3.) Teaching The Letter Sounds, 4.) Some Practical Suggestions, 5.) Isolating the Letter Sounds. The Order of Lessons follows these very instructional spoken sections. ALL 128 Lessons in Alpha-Phonics are explained in these CD lessons, every bit of ground is covered, just like on the printed instruction pages of Alpha-Phonics. Following the 128 Lessons is a section on the English Alphabetic System and a section on Introducing the Cursive alphabet. While most parents are able to teach their children to read with only the Alpha-Phonics book these optional CD's have proven to be very helpful to the parent who is just a little unsure of themselves in being able to correctly pronounce the words their student is learning to read. The CD's are especially important to the parent who learned English as a second language or has, for some other reason, difficulty reproducing the sounds as clearly as she might wish. The combination of the CD set and Alpha-Phonics is nearly fool-proof material to teach anyone to read very well. While the information contained on the two CD's is very complete we must note that it is still quite important for the student to have the VISUAL presentation contained in the instruction book Alpha-Phonics. Attempting to use the 2-CD audio set alone would not work very well. If the parent is deciding to use only the book Alpha-Phonics or the 2-CD Audio set we would strongly advise using the Alplha-Phonics BOOK only. For the very best results the parent who has the Alpha-Phonics instruction book can, with the 2-CD audio lessons, listen to one lesson at a time while seeing the corresponding material in her book. It only takes a few minutes to prepare this way to teach the material to her student. This will prepare the teacher to be able to easily instruct her student quickly and easily; AND successfully! We apologize to any purchaser who felt they had gotten a lecture by the author rather than the lessons, including the pronunciation of sounds. Any parent who is not interested in the Introductory material spoken by Sam Blumenfeld can simply skip the introductory material and move forward to the actual instruction lessons.
