The 26 letters of the alphabet are printed on size A5 cards. Each card shows the upper case and lower case letter with an associated illustration. The letters are bright and bold and stand out so that they can be easily identified. Teachers record the letter sound or name for easy voice recognition by the child. The child selects a card and listens to the teacher saying the sounds by playing the card on the Language Master unit. He/she then does his/her own recording, saying the sound of the letter and checking back with the teacher’s recording.
