Podcast cover

In this episode, China Jeducation explores the magic of reading using a 6 year old test subject! Focused as always on international teaching, expat teachers and all things education related, this is a perfect podcast for any parent or teacher interested in exploring what factors enable and strengthen child/student literacy, the ability to read and write.

Using research and personal experience, they discuss if the key to literacy is reading development, a progression of skills that begins with the ability to understand spoken words and decode written words, and culminates in the deep understanding of text. Why do some children learn to read very easily where as others may struggle? Is it an innate quality that a child is born with or does a child’s environment hold all the answers?
