About Us

About us

We are passionate about making learning Zulu and Afrikaans an enjoyable experience, and offer an effective and accessible education solution for all learners.

Many learners struggle to grasp and use  Zulu or Afrikaans as a second  language since they lack the vital foundation skills. This often begins at a young age but can be addressed if learners are afforded the right opportunity to improve and excel.

Our desire is to help all learners overcome the misconception that learning Zulu and Afrikaans has to be difficult and that it is a barrier to them achieving academic success in their school career. This is why Learneo has created a simple, affordable and high quality solution that allows learners of various ages to better understand and become more proficient in a second language.

The solution we offer is video based and is designed to be an interactive and engaging experience that can be repeated and revisited as many times as needed.

My journey into education and technology began in 2013 when I began an offline video-based maths program which was aimed at assisting children in rural parts of South Africa have improved access to maths support programs. We had great success with the program developing over 6000 minutes of offline maths content and with many students improving their maths marks by 20% over the period of a year.
I then embarked on expanding our video-based learning support program with Afrikaans support videos. With these videos I began the e-learning website called Learneo in 2017. Since then we have expanded the program to include a Zulu video-based support program.
Our programs have been used both on an individual level to assist learners in improving their Afrikaans and Zulu skills and have also been rolled-out as part of a whole-school program at various schools to assist learners and teachers alike with the development of their language teaching and learning skills.
I am excited to welcome you to join us at Learneo and to take up the opportunity that technology provides us with in helping learners improve their understanding of language from the comfort of their own homes and at their own pace.

Heidi Wrogemann (Zulu Content & Curriculum Developer)

I have been involved in education at various levels, for thirty years.

My journey with Zulu started in the 80s when I studied it as one of three languages toward my teaching qualification. After qualifying as a teacher, I went on to study Psychology and Communication and I soon discovered how the human brain processes language. This discovery led to the creation of my unique methodology to teach a language effectively. I started my career at Prep School level and then moved on to create and implement courses to suit the specific needs of scholars up to matric, foreigners, and people in business environments.  I have created and successfully delivered training materials including workbooks, manuals, competency assessments, games and more recently, the Zulu content on Learneo.

My years of experience, expertise, and sheer dedication have resulted in the birth of this unique program.
