What is LearnThruPhonics?

Reading Renewed.

LearnThruPhonics is a specially designed interactive tool created to help older learners learn to read.


With the UK ranking amongst the worst of the developed countries for literacy and numeracy levels, there has never been a more important time to tackle low literacy levels. A recent 2016 survey showed that 1 in 10 English Graduates have low literacy and numeracy levels.


We believe that every young person has the right to learn to read. With increasing understanding surrounding different approaches to teaching, we have created this tool using the latest research into phonics and digital competency. 

Innovative Technology

Age-appropriate stories.

Age-appropriate stories ensure that reading is not a patronising experience for the older reader. By bringing reading into the digital age, we have created a way to bridge the gap and get young people excited by reading.

Learn at your own pace.

This method gives young people the confidence to tackle their low literacy skills by giving them the privacy to tackle the stories at their own pace

Digital Technology.

This reading tool uses a range of digital techniques to increase engagement with, and understanding of, the reading process. The reader can guide themselves through the stories at their own pace using the intuitive and interactive touch screen technology.


"For the first time I felt that reading could be fun. I loved being able to use technology to read."
