When you use Readably, there are many opportunities to correct in a way that forces the learner to think and ‘learn from their mistakes’.
When you use comparison to show rather than tell, it gives the learner an opportunity to see what their mistake was.
Here's an example:
- You ask for /pat/.
- Learner makes /pit/.
- You make /pat/ yourself and contrast the two words.
- Guidance you can offer: Read each word.
- Guidance you can offer: If this is /pat/ [pointing at their /pit/], then what is this [pointing at your /pat/].
