Seperti biasanya, belajar di rumah artinya belajar yang santai-santai saja. Belajar yang kira-kira 60-70% krucils sudah menguasainya. Misalnya, memberikan materi Comprehension untuk Year 1 (5-6 tahun) untuk krucils yang berusia 7 tahun.

Sebetulnya Comprehension itu apa? Menurut wikipedia, Reading comprehension is the ability to read text, process it and understand its meaning. Ringkasnya, Comprehension adalah kemampuan membaca teks, memprosesnya, dan memahami maknanya. Jadi Comprehension bukan sekadar kemampuan membunyikan bacaan, tetapi kemampuan memahami bacaan.

Buat saya pribadi Reading Comprehension menyenangkan terutama jika harus memahami bacaan fiksi. Jadi target saya nggak setinggi ‘kurikulum Inggris’. Buat saya target Comprehension minimal adalah, membaca cerita. Titik. Selesai. Jadi kalau pertanyaan-pertanyaannya nggak bisa dijawab ya nggak apa-apa. Kita diskusikan.

Berikut salah satu cerita untuk mengasah keterampilan Comprehension krucils pertama (umur 7 tahun) beberapa hari lalu. Sekali lagi, sebetulnya materi ini adalah untuk usia 5-6 tahun.

The Talking Dogs

As Mr Platt walked towards the Blue Cap Inn, a labrador, who was lying in the sun, said, “Good morning!”. Mr Platt was amazed! He thought he was hearing thins bu again the dog said, “Good morning.”
“Er – er – good morning!” replied Mr Platt as he went inside the Inn.
“I can’t believe my ears,” he said to the landlord.
“Why?”
“That dog outside has just said ‘Good morning’ to me.”
“No, no, no, you’re mistaken,” the landlord said.
“But he said it twice,” replied Mr Platt.
“Hang on a minute! Was there another dog with him?”
