Everyone has to start somewhere and since letters are the building blocks of the language, the alphabet is the perfect place to begin. Only elementary learners spend a significant amount of time learning the alphabet but these lessons are really important and will help them succeed later on. If students are not familiar with the Latin alphabet, this will take a while and they will need to practice writing each letter too. As basic as this seems, even adult beginners are going to need to start here so dedicate plenty of time to it. You never really finish with the alphabet but once students are comfortable with this material, they will be ready to move on to learning vocabulary, numbers, and even forming simple sentences. It can be a real pleasure to see students grow and this is most evident when covering basic topics such as this one.
