Zinglish

Zinglish, is English with a ‘zing’ (lively, punchy English!). This multi-year program imparts English fluency even to children whose parents do not speak the language.

Non-sequential Derived Writing

Lowercase alphabets are written non-sequentially. Alphabets with simple strokes are written first, followed by those with anti-clockwise strokes and finally letters with clockwise strokes.

Phonic Sounds

Phonic sounds of consonants are introduced to children as they begin writing alphabets, laying a solid foundation for advanced hybrid phonic spelling and early reading skills.

Units

Units, comprising a mix of vowels and consonants, are the fundamental building blocks of hybrid phonics spelling, crucial for word formation and developing early literacy skills.

Hybrid Phonics Spelling

Perhaps the easiest spelling technique on the planet, LKG kids spell 106 words effortlessly with ridiculous ease and without parental support! And, these spellings are never forgotten by the children.

Ladder Reading

LKG children do levels 1 and 2 of our comprehensive, three-year reading program, which is designed to progressively enhance their reading skills and literary comprehension.
