COMMENTS FROM PARENTS & STUDENTS
Thank you for giving our two sons the opportunity to
improve their academic skills. Not only have their grades
improved considerably, but also their confidence in
themselves. This is definitely one of the best investments
we have made for our children and their future.

the group discussions, making new friends and always
look forward to the refresher course. My marks have
improved by 15%

Ashley Van Der Merwe - Grade 9
I loved going through the course and discovering how
much I could improve my marks. For instance my Science
has improved from 50% to 60% and my maths has improved
from 50% to 72%.
Debora Crivelia - Grade 9
I am dyslexic and therefore I've had to be open in
trying different learning methods. The Active Learning
Course highlighted the importance of linking the right
and left portions of the brain, associating numbers,
letters and words with pictures and colours. Having
finished school I still use this method to remember
all day to day information. I believe that this program
should be implemented at an earlier age.
In my twelve years of being involved in life skills,
I have observed many organisations offering different
types of courses to pupils. I can honestly say that,
to date, this is the first course, which has fulfilled
all the commitments made to the pupils, their parents
and the school.

TESTIMONIALS FROM LEADING CAPE SCHOOLS
The organisation "Active Learning" has successfully
taught people how to learn for the past 11 years and
is currently engaged with a number of leading schools
in and around Cape Town. The primary objective is to
equip students with techniques and methods that aid
the absorption, retention and recall of information.
Our experience has shown that students applying the
principles of the Active Learning Course can enjoy benefits
of mark improvement, reduced study time and improved
We are confident that the course offered by this organisation
is sound and that the follow up work they do helps pupils
to assimilate and master the skills they teach.
Their enthusiasm and genuine concern for the pupils
have been evident at all times. Much of their success
can be attributed to their very real understanding of
pupils misconception about learning, the demands of
the school syllabus and parents expectations.
The skills which they promote, are not only valuable
in the present time but are life-long skills which will
be of great benefit at any stage of one's career. In
short, our pupils who have been fortunate enough to
do the course, have benefited immeasurably.
