A Study on the Application of Phonics in the Cultivation of Children’ English Core Literacy

Dan Wu


The development of core literacy is the starting point and destination of English teaching. When it comes to primary
school English teaching, teachers should pay attention to the children’ recognition and spelling of English words so as to lay a
good foundation for English learning. Through Phonics, children can be taught to decode the speech, so as to help them memorize
words and improve their English core literacy. In this study, methods are used to explore the current situation of the cultivation of
core literacy in English, and to clear the application effect of Phonics in the training process. It is found that the level of children’
core literacy is unbalanced. Those abilities can be improved to a certain extent through Phonics, such as children’ language ability,
learning ability and quality of thinking.
