Phonics is as essential as word meaning. Phonics is a great way to learn adding music to the lesson. Learning the sound of words is a major factor in learning to write as well. The more confident the student feels in the pronunciation the more the student can write and create better communication. It starts at the lower level but can be also used for other language acquisition. I use phonics when teaching Spanish and it can be reversed and used for English or any language as well.
