Isabelle commented on How can we tackle illiteracy on a global scale?

When I was in Kenya last week, I had the opportunity discuss his issue with a teacher, she explain to me that she often has to go back to the child tribe language to get them to click on the relationship between letter and sound, she has covered the walls with drawing and underneath the name in Kiswahili or Tribe language, because they have no access to written material.

Speaking several languages is an invaluable wealth, which unable us to understand other and accept our differences.

I totally agree that it's important to establish language as a global common language (charity foundation comment), but learning how to read using visual tools (modern method) only works in your mother tongue, how can you make a child understand "D" like in "Dog" if for he sees a "Chien". It's easier to build on what the child knows, and then move on to english.
