the sound of a as in spar - from Lesson 1

Many units of Now Read This have lists of words that have the same sound. Each word is read out aloud and highlighted so that the learner can follow easily. The learner can interrupt this by clicking on a word to hear it alone. In each unit the easier words are on the left and only these need be learnt by the beginner. The other words are for more advanced learners. The tutor should supervise to ensure the learner is working at an appropriate level.
