Have you ever heard of the scientifically proven yet simple concept of literacy development through Same Language Subtitling (SLS)? It is basically using subtitles on the screen in perfect sync with audio and visual matching which is also known as ‘reading Karaoke style’. Dr. Brij Kothari, Cornell Ph.D. graduate and child literacy expert, developed the SLS idea back in 1996 and created the BookBox Series. He spent years working on studies of literacy improvement in India using his techniques with positive results. SLS has been proven to help children with their listening comprehension, reading skills and foreign language skills and I wanted to see how it worked.
