Re: Things that have Changed Since You were in School
Where do you get the idea that it's easier that way? English is a phonetically written language. It's not Chinese.
I don't have to hear kids stumble across words like cat and dog and truck like I did growing up. Someone can just look at a word and know what it is instead of wasting 20 minutes going c- cuh cuh cuh a - ah ah ah t - tuh tuh tuh Cat. It makes reading out loud excruciating.
