Let Your Child Read Fluently And Write Confidently

The S.A.E Phonics and English Program

Why Choose S.A.E For Your Child?

Structured Phonics Approach

S.A.E uses a structured phonics approach that simplifies the English language into 44 sounds to help children to learn to read words and spell words without memorizing thousands of words individually.

Learning To Read And Spell


1. Say the individual sounds (phonemes) that make up a word

2. Merge the sounds together (blending) to say the word

D + O + G >> dog


1. Say the word and break it down (segmenting) into phonemes

2. Write the letter or letters (graphemes) that represent the phonemes

Overview of 6 Phonic Phases

1 >> Oral blending and segmenting using images and early letter recognition

2 >> 19 most common single letter sounds and some digraphs

3 >> 7 remaining single letter sounds, digraphs and some trigraphs

4 >> Digraphs, trigraphs, adjacent consonants and common spelling patterns

5 >> Digraphs, adjacent consonants, silent letters and split digraphs

6 >> Prefixes, suffixes, past tense, high frequency words and spelling rules

Guided and Independent Practice

S.A.E worksheets are carefully structured to systematically develop reading and writing skills through a variety of activities and text types. Key areas are learned in gradual steps to ensure understanding and revised at increasing complexity.

Through guided practice in class and independent practice at home, children develop strong literacy skills, self-discipline and good study habits.

Individual Learning Plan

We use a comprehensive diagnostic assessment to pinpoint the skills a child has mastered and the skills the child needs more support with. Then, we prescribed a personalized learning plan tailored to each child at their own skill level and pace, because no two children learn alike.

In addition, we use the coaching approach with probing questions and a lot of encouragement to help students explore, discover and build confidence towards English.
