A couple of weeks ago I went to an event at Newcastle University all about phonics.

It was an excellent opportunity to meet some new and old friends and listen to the excellent Suzi Bewell who is a major expert on these things.

I won't go into all the details here as she tells it better on her blog. Suzi has also written a guide to using phonics which you can download from here.

There are many resources on phonics on Suzi's "do once and share" wiki which are amazing.

Here are links to a couple more of Suzi's phonics presentations:

Creativity and (French) Phonics

You say mince and I say mince

Other people have produced some excellent phonics resources, too:

Rachel Hawkes's website has a list of web based phonics resources

Alice Ayel's blog has some good phonics links.

Clare Seccombe's Phonics in KS2 and KS3

Helena Butterfield has produced a French phonics resource based on Jolly Phonics.
She has also produced a German pronunciation guide, too.

There is also a very good German phonics resource produced by JacquiT (Sadly, I don't know who she is. If anyone knows please tell me so I can give her the credit she is due.)

There is also this German pronunciation guide clip on Youtube
