About the course

Phonemic awareness is the ability to hear and manipulate individual phonemes, or sounds. When combined with graphemes (letters) we are able to read aloud and our audience understands what we are saying. This is an important skill because it gives readers a way to approach sounding out and pronouncing new words.
