I had a terrible time reading it! It's probably because I was taught the old-fashioned (and better/more accurate) way using phonics.
People who were mis-taught (IMHO) using the Look-Say method probably won't have much trouble with it. They don't know what they're reading half the time anyway.
I live with a look-sayer and believe me, they really don't know, nor understand, what they're reading half the time. He's misunderstood more written messages than mere chance would allow...and the results are sad, frustrating, and sometimes just plain funny.
Even superior level intelligence can't overcome the handicap of learning to read???? with the look say method. It's sad.
Yeah, the human brain is very smart...and so under-utilized it's pathetic. Even the brightest among us use less than 10% of their brain's potential.
