Educational principles underlying this programme:

Academix does not aim to teach learners how to read (there are other programmes availalbe through Zentium, that will assist with is). It is also not exclusively a reading development program. Rather, it is a bilingual educational programme that aims to assist learners in all of their subjects, as reading is such a basic fundemental skill, with which academix achievement is not possible. Academix therefore provides the opportunity for all learners, of all ages to develop the skills required to process academix information. This programme is often used by adults as well! Reading lessons have been graded according to age and subjects of interest. It can be used as an instrument to rectify reading problems or as a reading development program.
