i am an old teacher working in Egypt for the past 36 years.. i have seen NEW methods come and go. The one that really GETS my goat is the one that lets pupils in Primary one spell as they like... example boy is boye.. or name is naym. The teacher in Primary one lets them spell how they like , and so when they come up to me in Primary 2 they write all words wrong!! Who agrees with me that THIS method is not good enough, from the start they MUST learn the correct way to spell !!!
