Title: (EN) Method and apparatus for teaching english
Abstract:
(EN) Method and apparatus are used for teaching English, using color and a few symbols to indicate the correct pronunciation. English text is displayed together with visual pronunciation clues, where the clues are added only to words which have either an irregular or ambiguous pronunciation, to achieve an easy to learn method. The visual pronunciation clues include color or symbols or a combination thereof, with a color or symbol for each separate sound whose pronunciation it is desired to so indicate. At least part of the colors are sound/color matched. At least part of the symbols are sound/symbol matched. The color clue comprises the writing in color of the entire word. The color-encoding method uses only ten colors to represent the vowel sounds. A method and apparatus for teaching the student to associate the colors and symbols to the specific sounds is disclosed.
