Common Auditory Confusions

It can be difficult to help a learner with reading and spelling when either or both of you do not accurately distinguish between some of these tricky English sounds. It is time well spent --for tutor and learner alike--to focus on these basics so learners may begin the work of associating the sounds of English with the written representation. This focus on sounds comes before phonics and is termed "Phonemic Awareness".
