I feel as though in my younger age I am half asleep. I can't remember how did I learn to read all I know is when I turned Grade 3 I can just read fast. I even remember feeling sleepy and drowsy when my teacher in Grade 1 is teaching us to read. It's seem my mind is not yet fully developed at that time. I'm half conscious. We learn to read Filipino words by syllables like ba- be-bi-bo-bu. Now children are thought to use phonics and read CVC patterns like cat, mat, hat, can, fan, tan. Did you remember clearly how you learned to read?

I too can't remember it clearly. But I started to read from first standard and I can remember the lessons at that time. May be it was slow progressing job. I started to learn English from 5th standard.

I learned before school at three years old. My mom read to me all day from the time I was a newborn. THen when I could sit, she would have me look at the words as she read to me. She suspected I was able to read and she suddenly would stop reading, and I would take over and finish the sentence or paragraph!

At three years old. I'm not aware if I can read at that time. It just happened naturally

Yes, I clearly remember how I learned to read French when I was 5 years old. My oldest sister taught me.

I remember I was 5 and I was in pre-school, we started with letters and then syllables.

We were probably too young to remember unless someone like our mom or teachers told us about it...

I can't remember my lessons then or if I struggled. Maybe I learned through pictures
