1) Classroom teaching
The charts are available in A2, A3 and A4 sizes, suitable for classrooms with more or less wall space and classes with different numbers of students. In general, for the comfort of the students we recommend using the largest size of charts that you can fit onto the wall space available.
We would not recommend using the small set with more than 3 students, the medium set with more than 8 and the large set with more than 40.
The classroom charts are printed on a tough polyester canvas using matte inks, so they can be seen clearly even if hung where a poster would suffer from light reflection. They can be rolled for transport and storage. We normally print orders in a batch at the end of each month.
2) One-to-one teaching
The charts also exist as a smaller set for one-to-one teaching, printed on card, with each Word chart at A5 size.
When working with one (or at most two) students, the One-to-one charts should be positioned vertically (i.e. off the table top), and within the student's reach to be able to point on the charts comfortably.
3) Individual study
For individual study, the charts are laid out on an A4 card.
All sets come with a full set of keys.
The charts are sent from the UK. Many countries charge duties on imports. These have to be paid by the purchaser on receipt of goods.
For Silent Way classroom charts, a "set" is made up of a Rectangle chart, 5 Word charts and the Fidel. The cost for any size is £90.
The cost for a One-to-one set is £50.
The cost of an individual set for self-study is £5/€6/$7.
Postage and packing depends on the destination.
Cuisenaire rods and Gattegno's wall pictures for the Silent Way can be purchased through The Cuisenaire Company.
