Does this eLearning Course use Phonics?
Absolutely not. It is NOT Phonics. Phonics teaches the sounds that letters make, which is very confusing because many letters in the English Language make multiple sounds. Unlike Phonics, NEEPO is 100% consistent and regular, making it easy to read English in order to speak it with correct pronunciation, resulting in little or no accent. Speak English With NEEPO teaches the sounds of English with a corresponding symbol and the combination sounds of English with their corresponding symbol. It DOES NOT teach the sounds that letters make, which is what Phonics does. Phonics does not have the same miraculous effect or results that NEEPO (New English Phonetic Orthography) produces. NEEPO is a totally different methodology than Phonics.
Why is Speak English With NEEPO perfect for Spanish speakers?
English letters have many sounds making it confusing to speak, read, and spell English. Would you like English to have only one letter or symbol for each sound of English and to form words from those letters and sounds so it would be easy to read like Spanish? If your answer is yes, then you're going to like to learn how to speak English using the NEEPO method.
Speak English With NEEPO transforms confusing traditional English into NEEPO (New English Phonetic Orthography) now making English easy to read, therefore easy to speak for the very first time in history.
Once you learn the NEEPO method of spelling English, which is spelling words with the NEEPO symbols that represent the 36 sounds and 10 combination sounds of English, you will now be able to form words that are 100% regular and consistent making it possible for you to read English exactly the way it is spoken.
With Speak English With NEEPO, you will start speaking English correctly from day one by reading the letters or symbols to speak the 36 sounds and 10 combination sounds and then reading pure English words, then reading sentences in pure English the correct way with little or no accent.
Do I need to study the grammar rules of the English language while taking this e-course?
No. The best part of learning how to speak English with this eLearning course is that you are learning how to speak English correctly and fluently without having to learn all the grammar and punctuation rules.
Will Speak English With NEEPO confuse learners in regards to correct spelling of traditional English?
In case studies, NEEPO has been shown to help learners transition to the reading and spelling of traditional English. In no way has it ever shown that it confuses learners. Traditional English is displayed beside the NEEPO text for easy reference and association. Besides, we have the traditional English right along side the NEEPO text for association purposes so that you can see the reason why you need NEEPO to speak, read and spell the English language.
Is the NEEPO methodology similar to other phonetic methodologies, such as the International Phonetic Alphabet, that are available and used in the teaching of English speaking?
No, not at all. It is a totally new and unique phonetic method that is entirely different from all other phonetic methodologies used in the teaching of English speaking. First of all, it is 100% regular and consistent in its use and application. It uses only the pure English alphabet, and there are no confusing symbols. It is designed for educational purposes for ages 7 to adult. (5 yr. olds, if computer literate should have no problem using the software).
Can an ESL teacher who wants to be a facilitator of Speak English With NEEPO integrate regular classroom materials into the content to enhance subject matter?
Of course, we encourage ESL teachers to do this. It may take a little longer for the learner to complete.
Can I cancel my subscription at any time and not be charged for any further payments for myself or my students?
Yes, you may cancel your subscription at any time and not be charged for any further payments.
How many learners can take the eLearning course in the same room at the same time?
You can enroll as many learners as you can accommodate. They all can be speakers of different languages. You may assign homework where they can practice speaking on Modules and Sections you were working on in class to provide more practice time. Remember, the more they practice, the better English speakers they become.
Is there training available for ESL teachers that want to become a Facilitator of this eLearning Course?
Yes, there is training for ESL teachers that want to become Facilitators. We want teachers to understand what Speak English With NEEPO is, how it works and why it’s different. We also want them to be familiar with the user-friendly instructions we have available to teachers and students alike. When teachers have completed the necessary training, they will be awarded a “Certificate of Completion.” They will then be able to facilitate the eLearning Course forever, if they like.
How long can a learner be enrolled to complete Speak English With NEEPO?
A Learner or a Facilitator can be enrolled as long as it takes the learner to complete this eLearning Course, at $19/month. It takes as little as 72 hours to complete this eLearning course. There will only be a charge for the months learners are enrolled.
Will there be customer service and tech support available to anyone who subscribes to Speak English With NEEPO?
Yes, support is available during normal business hours M-F 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 pm. MST. We encourage our customers to contact us at any time by phone or email. You may reach out by phone at (505)261-3644 or by email at [email protected]
1. Access Refugee Settlement Program
Report on the “NEEPO ESL” Pilot Program at the Access Refugee Settlement Program in Linda Vista, San Diego, CA
The Ilyin Oral Interview, a one-on-one test of basic English speaking and listening comprehension ability, was used as the pretest and posttest. The pretest was administered by our teacher and the posttest by an Access employee. Only students pre-testing at less than 15 on the Ilyin test were eligible for the program. (There are 100 points on the test)
2. Olive Peirce Middle School ESL Class
“Not only are my students learning to pronounce words correctly, but they are learning English Grammar as well.”
She said it was easy and fun for her students. She truly believed from her experience teaching with the course that her students were learning to speak English at a much faster rate than if she was doing all the teaching herself.
Her final comments in the review was: “I am thrilled that I have had the opportunity to take part in the piloting of such a wonderfully creative and helpful instructional tool. It is a very positive and enriching addition to my ESL classroom.”
– Julia Doria, ESL Teacher
3. ESL teacher in a High School ESL Class – Virginia Public Schools
The students think that it is really fun. They see the progress and know that they have learned and that the program is working. The students don’t realize that they are learning a lot of grammar, but they are. I noted that Renata really enjoys her 45 minutes. She has a fun time and she doesn’t get bored despite the fact that we are asking her to work in a language that is not her own. We know how boring that could be if the program were not interesting or effective. I think the creators of this course did just a great job. All the sounds and activities are really fun, so they enjoy it.
– Fernando Pantoja, ESL Teacher
4. Instructional Coordinator’s Comments – Virginia Public Schools
“I believe you are on the “cutting edge” of assisting people with the language barriers that keep them from opportunities to be productive American citizens. Thank you for the opportunity to work with you in piloting your software program.”
Ironically, Nikki stated that our ESL course helped students learn how to read traditional English, even though they learned to speak English with NEEPO to start. Somehow it helps them decipher the irregular English and to make sense of the traditional English orthography, such as the word, “comparison” or “composition”
