Learning to read

From Teflpedia

Learning to read is the acquisition and practice of the reading skills necessary to understand the meaning behind written texts.[1]

Most children learn to read.

Due to the irregularity of English spelling, native English-speaking children typically take 2 years longer to learn how to read compared to speakers of languages that follow the alphabetic principle. Learning to read in English presents a particular challenge for English language learners. This can be complicated by learning difficulties, especially dyslexia.
