In french, the phonics method is called "syllabic". It's also called "B.A. BA" as it is generally the first pair that is learned.

"B.A BA" is also used as synonymous of the basics knowledge of any domain, equivalent to "101" in english.

It seems to me that reading with syllabic is the first time we learn how to solve a problem by decomposing it into many simpler subproblems. This seems like a great teaching in addition to being able to read.
