Workplace Programs

Save money, improve Safety standards, lower accident rates and increase the potential of upskilling your employees.

The Sound Way program provides the perfect solution to delivering significant improvement
to your company's productivity, profitability and communication network by providing effective English literacy teaching & training to needful employees.

How does it do this?

Through a sequentially developed set of Direct Instruction video teaching lessons, the Sound Way program's video presenter explains and leads whole classes (small or large) through a step-by-step, face-to-face process to learn and master the essential phonetic skills along with the necessary rule knowledge that will allow them to successfully spell, write and read English.

The multi-sensory Sound Way programs begin by first teaching and programming the brain with the 45 sounds (phonemes) that comprise English words and the 75 ways there are of representing these sounds on paper (phonograms). The teaching, drilling and instilling of this esssential phonetic knowledge starts in the very first video-lesson and continues throughout the program. Integrated within this teaching is a thorough explanation and application of the rules of English spelling. This demystifies the reading and writing process and makes it truly understable to the students.

As the video-presenter systematically develops and presents the vital phonetic knowledge and understandings on the screen, the workplace participants are interactively working along with him recording their work in carefully prepared and provided workbooks; allowing the course facilitator the freedom to move around the room and actively oversight and supervise the participants as they work. The results facilitators obtain through this cooperative approach to English literacy training can only be described as "stunningly amazing". What used to take years, can now be accomplished in a few short months!

Extract from Rio Tinto Magazine: An Educated Choice

"The Sound Way results have so far been very impressive. Eight out of the eleven of our participants have been accepted by Pilbara Iron and have sailed through their induction programs. Now they are being trained on the job: bobcats; front-end loaders; backhoes... you name it."

English Literacy Training for Senior Officers of the Armed Forces of Oman - Middle East

The Oman Ministry of Defence ran a pilot program with a group of ranking officers. At the end of the program 93% of the officers thought it was the best English literacy course ever and most wanted to purchase it to give to their children and families.

What to Expect When Doing the Course?

Interactive Lessons

The Sound Way program consists of 50 interactive lessons, presented by Founder Craig Henderson. Craig methodically works with the participants explaining key concepts and reinforces the teachings with stories. We encourage all participants and their facilitators to interact back with Craig.

Work Along with Craig

Each participant receives their own workbook and works along with Craig, filling it out as they go. They start with practicing writing methods, all the way through to completing exercises, that get progressively more advanced as the course goes on.

An Hour a Day, Three Days a Week

We recommend participants complete three lessons a week. This ensures consolidation of learning and a steady progress through the course. The workplace program has 35 lessons; with the option to extend that to 50 lessons. The 15 additional lessons teach cursive writing and provide vocabulary extension.

From Cat to Miscellaneous

The phonics teaching and learning is progressive and based upon science-backed research. Participants start off with basic words and progress to more advanced words and complex sentence structures. The improvement throughout the program truly is amazing.
