Learning Academy Worldwide, was founded in the year 2000 in Sweden by South African-born, Theophilus van Rensburg Lindzter.
Its main focus is on improving skills of critical reading, listening, reasoning, speaking and writing of the English language.
Inspired by the work of Mortimer J. Adler, the Academy believes that the reading and discussing of ideas emerging from great literature can truly provide a learner with a promising start to a life of usefulness - as such the work of Learning Academy supports a literature-based approach to learning.
At the same time, technology, and especially Mobile Technology, features prominently in the work of Learning Academy Worldwide. Technology-assisted learning is aiding initiatives in education globally and Mobile Learning features within our projects as tools to creatively engage learners in the learning process.
