Many children find it difficult to articulate initial consonant blends seeming always to bring the 2 or 3 single consonant sounds together one by one rather than smoothly blending them together bl dr str.
Each of the 24 talking cards in this programme present 3 words demonstrating the same initial consonant blend which is printed in bold face. By listening to the recording on the Student Track and comparing it with the Master recording, the child soon masters the pronunciation of the blends and quickly improve his or her reading.
The talking cards are un-illustrated to give a more mature appearance, suitable for the older hesitant reader.
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.
