12 Very short Fùtùr Storys for reading without spelling traps
If you are flying to Mexico, you can hold in your hand a little card that shows the spelling of every Spanish sound.
Then, when the plane lands, you can pronounce, in Spanish, virtually every word on every sign you see. You won't know the meaning of many words, but you can pronounce them, and that's a good start toward learning the language.
The reverse is not true. No migrant coming to say, the United States, can hold a card that shows the spelling of English sounds. Such a card, if it could be made would be the size of a refrigerator door since we spell our 42 sounds in a potpourri of over 400 different ways. Scores of rules and exceptions add to the confusion. (Edward Rondthaler)
