Let us guide you through the world of phonics...

"As a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step, so the journey of learning English begins with Phonics." Craig Wright – Author
  • Children learn sounds step-by-step
  • A unique journey strip at the bottom of each page shows the sounds learned, and sounds still left to learn
  • Review sections let students and teachers see their progress
  • Go even further with 'Now try these!' activities


"We started using Oxford Phonics World 2 just this year…

My job is easier because of the quality of the materials…and my students are more excited to learn English because the material challenges them in just the right way, offering a task that takes some struggle, but can be overcome…

Now, our students’ writing ability is significantly higher than before, and they are often able to read the short phrases in the stories they’re presented without teacher aid… They like seeing just what they can do, and being able to hold a book that they read on their own makes them visibly proud.”

Corey Fegan – Sendai Shirayuri Elementary, Sendai, Japan
