It’s fascinating how paradoxical life can be.  We live in the era of knowledge and information.  Some of us understand that learning difficulties are not genetic, but are unconsciously learnt during the course of any “affected” individual’s life.  We see countless government initiatives for better learning [costing billions] all over the world, yet despite all this the largest societal formations, such as mainstream education systems, still live in the past – and don’t seem to be in any hurry to change!  Read the rest of this entry »

Beware of heard, a dreadful word that looks like beard and sounds like bird.

And dead: it’s said like bed, not bead; for goodness’ sake, don’t call it deed!

Watch out for meat and great and threat, they rhyme with suite and straight and debt.

A moth is not a moth in mother, not both in bother, broth in brother.

And here is not a match for there, nor dear and fear for bear and pear.

And cork and work and card and ward and font and front and word and sword.

And do and go, then thwart and cart – come, come!  I’ve hardly made a start!

And yet to write it the more I try, I’ll not learn how til the day I die.

Need I say more?  Well, perhaps.   Read the rest of this entry »
