Next Level Learning

THRASSAfrica is operated by Next Level Learning (Pty) Ltd, and is the only company authorised to sell THRASS products in South Africa, Swaziland, Lesotho, Botswana and Namibia.

THRASS® is a phonics programme that has been specifically designed to teach children (and adults) about the 44 speech sounds (phonemes) in spoken English and their related 120 keyspellings (graphemes) in written English.

THRASS moves away from the traditional “One Letter Makes One Sound” method of teaching phonics and teaches children that letters can make different sounds depending on the ‘job’ they have to do in different words. For example, the letter “a” makes a different sound in each of the following words: ant; baby; banana; zebra; swan and ball.
