Word Charts

The word charts present the most common English words, using the same colour code as the sound-colour chart and the Fidel. Gattegno called these words the “functional vocabulary”. Many of these words can not be directly translated into other languages, making them the most difficult and also most important words for beginners to learn.

The colour coding of the letters is identical to that used on the sound/colour chart and the Fidel.
