Lateral training: language and listening comprehension, enhanced learning
Good listening comprehension is one, if not the most important, skill for successfully dealing with language - whether it is spoken, heard or written. If a child cannot distinguish the sounds b-d-g-k-p-t with certainty when it comes to school, it will not be able to assign the corresponding letters with certainty and "marry" the sounds. In many cases, children already show difficulties in distinguishing sounds in the preschool area. Often their pronunciation is unclean or they confuse certain sounds when speaking. While training around the brain boy helps to strengthen important basic brain skills that are important for listening comprehension, lateral training goes a decisive step further:
Phase 1: The trainee hears a story (wandering from ear to ear) and follows it in a textbook with the same wording by "sticking" his finger exactly to the letter.
Phase 2: Now the trainee reads the same section of text that he has just heard and read out loud from his textbook. Again the finger remains exactly at the current reading position.
Phase 3: A third time the same section of text is read - this time in such a way that the trainee reads loudly into the microphone again and hears his voice on one ear.
In the opposite ear, the model voice can be heard at the same time, and the trainee adjusts precisely to its tempo - so that he reads neither too fast nor too slow.
As soon as this 3rd phase functions safely, the user puts on special darkening glasses. These darken alternately one or the other eye while reading, so that - like over headphones for the ears - now also the eyes are trained in their interaction purposefully.
