What is Phonics?
Phonics is an art of reading and writing with the help of the sounds. Phonics is a method of teaching to read by correlating sounds with symbols in an alphabetic writing system. An alphabet has a pronunciation of its own, when it is pronounced individually. It has got different sound when it is combined with the other alphabets.

English spelling is more complex. It is grounded on the alphabetic principle. In an alphabetic writing structure, letters are used to denote speech sounds, or phonemes. For example, the word Bat is spelled with three letters, b, a, and t, each representing a sound, respectively, /b/, /a/, and /t/.
