what makes Linkit to Read® different?
The uniqueness of our approach lies in the fact that we make use of cognates as the foundation of our program, thereby helping learners for whom English is not a first language. Cognates are words that have a similar sound and meaning in the mother-tongue as in English. South African cognates include words from Zulu, Xhosa and Sotho.
The program is based on a variety of games which makes learning fun, promotes social interaction and challenges the mind by using all the senses. Different areas of the brain are activated, different learning styles are addressed and memory is enhanced.
The key to reading success is using a phonetic system which effectively teaches the mechanics of reading. New words can be sounded out easily and the skills to master spelling acquired.
