Mission Statement

The Vision of FUNetix is: UNIVERSAL LITERACY The Mission of FUNetix is: Deliver a smartphone app that will make that vision happen. Think of what it would mean if EVERY child could learn how to read from a smartphone in 12 hours! The mission of FUNetix is simple: get the app out! Get the FUNetix 12 Hour Reading App out to America's children through smartphones, laptops, desktops, tablets, Kindles, and classrooms. Get the app out through partnerships with publishing companies, schools, NGOs, parents, teachers, corporations and federal, state and local governments. Universal literacy is within reach because FUNetix is able to teach reading in a way that it has never been taught before, and with a speed that has never been conceived of before. FUNetix is here, and if your child is ready, we're ready. You can start learning how to read in 12 hours, today!

Description

FUNetix is a 19-years-new, patented, science-based, and incredibly simplified way of teaching reading to children that's finally available to parents and children anywhere in the United States and anywhere in the world via the FUNetix 12 Hour Reading App available in the App Store, Google Play store and Amazon App store. FUNetix is 19-years-new, but in some ways, it is more than 2,000 years old. The patented FUNetix Reading Decoding System is rooted in an ancient methodology that shows readers how to see the hidden sounds in every word. FUNetix earned its patent by borrowing the time-tested method called "diacritics" (which was developed more than 2,000 years ago by the Greeks, and adopted more than 1,000 years ago by the Hebrew and Arabic languages, to teach ALL children how to read those languages), and uniquely, completely and systematically applying it to English in a child-friendly and simple way. FUNetix teaches children how to "map" or "marry" all 44 sounds of the English language to the letters and letter combinations that make up English words. This mapping (made easy by diacritics) takes all of the guesswork out of "sounding out" words.

Any organization that wants to help children read is always a good way to help. So many children need help with reading that it’s nice ifpeople can reach out there and help them ,and I’d like to be one of those people.

This is a great way to interact with students, and to improve their education in a very engaging way. The program mimics the school-year schedule. In that regard, it is pretty flexible. I would totally recommend for anyone who interested to join this great effort of education!
