About Learning Tools

Our focus is on bringing high quality, trusted teaching tools into South Africa that help foundation phase and intermediate phase learners achieve success.

Language Resources

Learning Tools offers two language resources to help jump start learners with a second language. Conversation Station and Viva Vocab have been developed by teachers specifically to help learners in the art of critical thinking and vocabulary across four South African languages, namely Afrikaans, English, isiXhosa and Zulu. This video highlights the issues facing our teachers in the classroom and how these resources can be used to help them teach our children to think critically and develop their vocabulary in an interactive and fun way.

For years, the popular methodology for learning a second language has been to focus on grammar and sentences first and then on vocabulary. Recently, however, many teachers have realised that learning vocabulary first, leads to an easier transition into the second language. Learning grammar and how to construct sentences is easier once the learner has a reasonable base of vocabulary to draw on.

The rationale is that the same resource can be used for the younger children (aged 5 – 7) in mother tongue, and then in the older learners (aged 9 – 12) in the second language. Both games use English, Afrikaans, Xhosa and Zulu. There are questions and vocabulary words, and clear directions on correct pronunciation for......
