Actually, in order to teach my pupils a 'Reading", I had hundreds of "Questions" in my head!!. I was forced to learn a whole new set of symbols and sound-spelling correspondences. At first these strange-looking squiggles and lines were meaningless to me.  I tried everything I use with my students to learn them as quickly as possible.
