Seminar by Dr. Anastasia Ulicheva from the University of Hong Kong “Reading aloud across languages: theories and methods”

Reading aloud may seem like a trivial task to a literate adult, which it is not. Reading a word aloud entails a multitude of different processes (identifying printed symbols, converting them into phonological representations and selecting the appropriate one, blending the sounds together, among others). It is not surprising that for many children, learning to read turns out to be a long and effortful process.
