FUNetix is a Wonderful 12 Hour Flight to Literacy.

FUNetix is a new, patented, science-based, and incredibly simplified way of teaching reading to children.

 

FUNetix is new, but in some ways it is more than 2,000 years old. The patented "FUNetix Reading Decoding System," is rooted in an ancient, 2,000+ year-old methodology for showing children and emerging readers how to properly sound out written words.

 

FUNetix earned its patent by borrowing this time tested method called "diacritics" (developed more than 2,000 years ago by the Greeks, and adopted more than 1,000 years ago by the Hebrew and Arabic languages, to teach ALL children how to read those languages), and applying it to English in an unexpected and novel way.

 

FUNetix teaches children how to "map," or, "marry," all 44 sounds of the English language, to letters, and strings of letters, that make up English words, which effectively takes all of the guess work out of "sounding out" words..

We show you the sounds

FUNetix is easier, faster, more efficient, and more scaleable than any other phonics-based reading system, because FUNetix teaches phonics by showing children the sounds contained in every English word, using a child-friendly set of pictograms, or "sound symbols," that are easy to learn and remember.

 

For instance, see if you can remember that the Acorn says /ay/, the Eagle says /ee/, the Eye says /eye/, the Ocean says /oh/ and the Spoon says /oo/. Through 17 years of clinical research and field testing, we know that most children ages 6-9 can learn ALL of the sounds of English in about 3 hours or less.
