In Scotland, when synthetics phonics was used to teach children read in English as early as 5 years, they noticed that not only children were able to read easily but also they were 3 years ahead compared to children who learnt to read based on other methods when they were 11 years old.
It is the best phonics method because in order to read children just learn the smallest speech sounds and learn to blend the sounds to make words. This method of reading is superior to learning to read based on whole-language approach or word-rimes approach. In fact, recent scientific researches have confirmed that the brain reads reads by breaking words into sounds. It proves that synthetic phonics is the most natural way to read.
