All children at state school or devlet school in Turkey start to take English classes in the 4th grade.Dyslexic children will find English a hard language to learn unlike Turkish which is phonetic. They will most likely need some extra support to assist them in learning English.

Here is programme you could use to help your child if they are struggling with English . This programme is available on the internet and is free. The summer holidays maybe a good time to practice English.

Starfall is a site to help children learn to read. The site can be used for preschool through to second grade.The site has colourful graphics which will appeal to children.

Starfall focuses on letter-sound relationships, word recognition skills, and reading comprehension strategies. Beginning with the short vowel sounds, the programme offers stories along with phonics games and videos.

You could try to spend about 20 minutes each day on this type of programme.
In a previous article I talked about ABRACADBRA ( Canada ) which you could also use to help your child learn English.
