    Fitzroy or any Australian Program in Hong Kong

    Hi there,

    Have seen Fitzroy programs in Australia and Malaysia. From what I read, the feedback is very good. Is wondering if this program is in Hong Kong? Or is there any successful Australian program in HongKong?

    Cheers,
    Lim

    Fitzroy Phonics

    Hi, was too quick to send out the post. This is actually a Phonics Programme. Apparently, it is widely used in Australia, Singapore and Malaysia...

    I've used the Fitzroy Phonics programme in Australia - its great. The sounds are taught in a logical sequence and the readers and worksheets perfectly match the sounds being taught. The only way to access the resources is through the Aussie website - they ship internationally. Far better than Oxford Reading Tree as the vocabulary used in their books, particularly the earlier stages, never matches the phonetic development of younger students forcing them to memorise words rather than apply phonetic knowledge.

    Is not too familiar with Letterland and Jolly Phonics...are they very popular?
    And having Fitzroy as such a good programme, do you think it would be popular in Hong Kong?
