I am concerned about the begining readers in China having to learn two alphabets the English alphabet and the 40 sound symbols of the IPA.
It seems to me that much more could be accomplished by teaching the sounds of the English letters and their combinations.
The children now seem to be able to read the IPA but cannot read or pronounce English.
I think it is a waste of time and resources.
What do you all think?
