The English language has 26 letters in its alphabet. All words we speak, read and write are made up of 44 sounds. But these 44 sounds are written down in over 180 ways with only our 26 letters. This is why reading and writing is so complex. Use the videos below to continue to build and deepen your understanding of how different letters come together in pairs or groups to make one of the 44 sounds of the English language. These letter groups are called ‘Best Friends’. The videos will then continue with opportunities to apply your knowledge to read and write words utilizing these and other sounds.
