Each of the consonants in the alphabet has its own sound value which the learner has to master. However, in certain cases, 2 consonants come together to form a sound which bears no relation to their single consonant sound.
In this Consonant Digraph talking card programme, the child meets 11 such combinations ch, ck, sh, th, tch, ph, wh, ng, shr, thr, gh which between them create a total of 14 different sound values. The unique see, hear, say features of the Language master talking card system makes this difficult task less worrying for the learner.
Each card features 3 words containing the same consonant digraph.
The teacher records the cards on the Language Master and the children can listen to the teacher voice over and over again and then record themselves on the student track.
