The resources on this website are for teaching young learners the ABC's by sight and sound. I have used the lesson and these materials to teach the ABCs to Japanese kindergarten students in groups up to 50.
The course is taught in 13 lessons; each lesson teaches 2 letters. Download the Lesson Plan to use for each lesson; a video is being made for you to watch and study. There are also many different flashcards to download and use in the lessons. And there are a few songs that you can download and copy to a CD to use in the lessons, too.
The lessons are really quite simple, but the repetition works well for young learners. The kids are really enthusiastic and joyful, so the lessons are fun to teach. Good luck with your lessons!
