這個系列的四篇文章,我們將與你分享獨家內幕情報,徹底幫你協助孩子全面提升「聽、讀、寫、閱」的能力。


Sagebooks APP is simple and easy to use. With a single parent’s account you can manage multiple children’s accounts, tailor each individual study plan to their unique needs, and get reminder of each child’s progress and plan of the day. In the coming weeks, we will share with you some insider tips to help you best utilise the APPs functions so you can help your child step up in their listening, reading aloud, writing, and reading.

In this post, we will look at ways to encourage your child to READ ALOUD.

考古學和歷史學家從中東的出土古籍中的考究發現,當初「閱讀」(to read) 的意思是「高聲朗讀」(to read aloud) 和「聆聽」(to listen)。當時的其中一篇古文是這樣寫的:「請您聽清楚這塊板上的重要消息。如您判斷有必要,請國王也聽一聽。」目前已有越來越多的研究指出,現在普遍的默讀,會令我們未能完整地「閱讀」。

朗讀能增進對內容的記憶,已是無庸置疑的事,尤其對幼童和老年人。對於這一點,還出現了一個專門的名稱:「生產效應」。就是當我們按照所看到的文字生產出聲音 (也就是說:朗讀) 時,我們對這些內容的記憶會更牢。

對孩子來說,發聲朗讀有很多益處。首先,朗讀能改善孩子的發音。這並不是說當我們聽見孩子讀錯音,我們會糾正他;而是他自己聽到自己的讀音時,會自我糾正,那才是真正的有效。其次,朗讀能加深我們對所讀的內容的理解。朗讀時,我們的閱讀速度自然地減緩,讓我們有更多的時間在腦內處理信息。即使是成人,在閱讀重要文件 (例如合同) 時,也會讀出聲以求不致遺漏或誤解。孩子就更是如此了。此外,朗讀還能增加孩子的專注力、幫助他們吸收新詞彙,甚至能改善他們的聆聽能力。

練習發聲朗讀對增強孩子的自信心也很有幫助。一來,以上討論過的幾點,都能進而增強孩子的自信心。另外,孩子在學校,被老師叫站起來當着全班朗讀是常有的事。當孩子在家中有了練習的機會,他對自己的發音和朗讀方法有把握,那就當然能充滿自信地樂於在班裏朗讀了。

Archaeologists and historians discovered from ancient tablets that the word “to read” actually meant “to read aloud and to listen” in those days. It is evident from one of the messages on an ancient tablet: “Please listen to this table carefully, and if it deemed necessary please also ask the king to listen to it.” More and more studies are suggesting that something might be missed when we are reading in silence now.

There is no more doubt that reading aloud helps us remember the contents better. This is especially true to older people and young children. Scientists called it the “production effect” – when we produced the sounds of the words that we read, we form more enduring memory of the contents as a result.

There are many benefits to the child when they read aloud. First of all, it improves their pronunciation. This is not to say that we correct them whenever we here a mistake. Rather, they continually correct and refine themselves when they hear themselves read. Secondly, it improves our comprehension. When we read aloud, our reading speed naturally slows down, allowing us more time to process the information in our heads. Even for adults, it’s very common that we read out loud important documents (such as contracts and fine prints) to make sure that we haven’t missed or misunderstood anything. This is particularly true for children. Other benefits also include improved focus, learning new vocabulary, and even improving their listening skills.

Practicing reading aloud boosts your child’s confidence. On one hand, all the points we just discussed would boost your child’s self-confidence. Further, it’s very common for teachers at school to call upon students to read aloud in front of the whole class. When your child has had practice at home, they would be confident about their pronunciation and their skills. They would happily read in front of the class and feel good about themselves.

現在,你可以利用Sagebooks APP的功能,參考下面的五招,讓孩子練習朗讀,全面提升孩子的學習素質了。


Follow any, or all, of the 5 tips below, and make use of Sagebooks APP to help your child practice reading aloud and improve the quality of their study.

I. 跟讀 Shadowing

打開Sagebooks APP,掃一掃要學習的那課第一頁左下角的QR,播放課文音頻。聽過兩、三次之後,聽一句,讀一句,最好讓孩子自己用食指指着課文引導視線。當孩子對課文純熟,感到有把握了,進展到聽一課,讀一課。


Open the Sagebooks APP, scan the QR at the bottom left corner of each lesson. Simply listen to the recording of the whole lesson 2-3 times. Then repeat after each sentence while following the text. Encourage your child to use their index finger to point at the text and guide their eyes. Once your child gets good that that, progress to listening to the whole lesson then read the whole lesson aloud.

II. 先讀,後比較 Read and Compare

當孩子同一課讀到第三/第四天時,對課文已經熟悉了,可以由孩子自己先朗讀,然後對比課文錄音,檢查自己是否讀得正確。


On the 3rd or 4th day of reading a same lesson, your child would be sufficiently familiar with it. Ask your child to read it aloud first, then listen to the recording and check how well they have read.

III. 朗讀錄音 Recording

用Sagebooks APP的錄音功能,錄下孩子朗讀的音頻,然後存放到APP裏。盡量做到每天錄一課,或最少錄一句。小孩子一般都很喜歡聽回自己的錄音,這個方法能鼓勵他們多朗讀。

Sagebooks APP有存檔的功能,能為你保存所有已存檔的音頻,作為日後必要時的用途。

  • 音頻記錄用途(1):你和孩子聽回三個月前的錄音,可以聽見孩子的進步,你獎勵他一番,他增強自信心。
  • 音頻記錄用途(2):如果你察覺孩子有任何語言障礙,尋求專業協助,這些音頻記錄能提供很多歷時性、實在的參考。

Make use of Sagebooks APP’s recording function to record your child’s reading and save the clip to the APP. Try to record at least one sentence each day. A lesson a day is much encouraged. Children love to listen back to their own recordings. This becomes a game and it encourages them to practice reading aloud more.

The Sagebooks APP can help you keep a profile of each of your children’s recordings. They could come in handy in several ways in the future.

  • Use of the audio records (1): When you and your child listen to the recording of three months ago, you will clearly notice their improvements. Praise them for that. They would and should be proud.
  • Use of the audio records (2): If you detected any speech deficiency in your child, you should seek immediate professional assistance. The audio records can serve as accurate historical reference.
IV. 更多朗讀練習 More Reading Aloud Practice

V. 聆聽和改善 Listen and Refine

孩子聆聽自己的朗讀音頻,日復一日,可以聽到自己的進步。在這過程中,孩子會逐步改善發音、聲調、朗讀的情感表現、聲線、速度等,提升朗讀和談吐的表現。

思展將逐步推出由專業教師「改卷及評語」,可以就孩子的朗讀表現提供評語,供家長參考,協助孩子不斷進步。請密切留意詳情的公佈。


When your child regularly record and listen back to their own recordings, they can hear their own progress. In this process, they continue to refine their pronunciation, intonations, expressions, speed, pitch and voice of their reading. All these would promote their articulation and speech.
