    Your situation is an example of not being taught with the method that worked for you. Some kids can be read to and learn that way. I'm guessing you aren't an aural learner? Was he showing you the book when he had you sound out the syllables, pointing out the syllables to you? Did he have you repeat the sounds after him?

    Those are visual and kinetic learning methods. I'm a visual learner. If I can't something I'm unfamiliar with being done, particularly math, science, and music, I have a lot of trouble understanding it. I can't just have it explained to me and be able to fully understand it. So like I said, learning to read is accidental more than anything. We're guessing at why one way works for one person and doesn't for another. All of the science that's been done has only come up with the ways that can work, we can't predict why something works for one person and not for another. And when teachers have a whole bunch of kids with individual styles of learning, stuff like what happened to you happens. They should have covered more ways of learning it with you, but they didn't.

    oh i thought you were calling me a liar. yeah we looked at the words together and he would sound them out or be like ok so you know this letter makes that sound and had combine them. but I am not an aural learning at all i'm very kinetic, like i don't do well in lecture courses because unless i'm doing something to reinforce what i've learned I won't retain it. I rely on flash cards for tests. It was 20 years ago so of course my memory isn't 100% but i do remember us sitting on are parents bed and i had book with a picture of a kitten on it. I don't remember what I see and I don't remember what I hear most of the time, so I'm learning how to convert binary to decimal, decimal to binary, hexadecimal to decimal, decimal to hexadecimal, binary to hexadecimal, and hexadecimal to binary. I have the rules written in my notes but I just practice them so i drill to steps into my head, if i read how to do 100000 times i wouldn't grasp it. it's not until I am taken through a new task step by step with explanation for a new thing that i begin to understand it.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    We're talking about cognitive processes, not developing a lifestyle.
    The facts are that children from literate households full of books learn to read and write more easily and better than those from impoverished households.
