Quick Reading and Spelling Tips -- QU

  • QU sounds like kw.
  • Q is almost always followed by a U in English words.
  • Exceptions to the rule are usually words from other languages. One example is the word Qatar. 

When reading, many young children confuse the words: quick, quite, and quiet. If they cover the 'qu' with a finger they should see that the words are phonemic.
