Hi! I would like to have some information regards teaching infants how to start reading English. Most teachers (in Malta) tend to use the Look-and-say method but I'm particularly interested in phonics. I teach 6 year olds and English, to the majority, is a foreign language rather than a second language.
Why don't you ask in our teaching folder, here: http://www.usingenglish.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=40
I'm not a teacher, so please consider any advice I give in that context.
