• Our latest collection of Reading Room stories feature fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm

Fairy Tales of The Brothers Grimm

These tales will delight children and adults alike with their mixture of magic and mystery.

Malevolent and dark, the fairy tales collected by the Brothers Grimm are not for the faint-hearted. Strange, creepy, romantic and filled with all manner of twisty things these stories impart valuable lessons about loyalty, resourcefulness and gratitude. From wicked enchantresses, to singing larks, golden birds and magical beasts, these Grimm-told stories are filled with all sorts of fantastical imagery. You’ll meet everything and everyone and discover that magic and goodness can be found just around the corner. On the other hand, Grimm’s collection also tells us that dark deeds, enmity and cunning tricksters are just as prone to lurk about and, that some exist closer to home than anywhere else.

I love that there is an option of tutor support, and that it can be done at my own pace, the free 14 day trial gives a good idea of the course before signing up.

Janine Gouws

My daughter has gone from strength to strength since joining Think Digital Academy. She is now so used to taking notes after watching and reading through the material that she has taken comprehensive notes during her Zoom swimming sessions and is able to explain everything that she has learnt easily from her notes. This is a child who really battled in the conventional schooling system and has undergone a tremendous change since joining Think Digital Academy. Thank you to the Think Digital Team you truly are a spectacular team 😁

It was the best decision to enroll my grade 10 and 12 kids here. They can't get enough of the interesting lessons. The people are so pleasant and always help with kindness, no matter how many times you call to ask for help. You are the BEST!!!!

Love the platform, very user friendly.

Annie Andrews

My boys are very much enjoying this. And I love that you can do this anywhere. We take our ipads to the park, and we work from there. I love it!

Bob Howard

TDA is by far the best home schooling platform in South Africa. As a digital home school, I as a student can be anywhere, literally, and do my work. My marks have gone up, I no longer have to travel 2 hours a day and I am much more focused on school work.

Michelle Ferreira

The best. My kids love it!

Lorinda Everson

Great home school option - we had a great experience last year during Covid lockdown. Our matric daughter passed with a university exemption - we were very happy with the support she received while she was doing her online studies with them - thank you Think Digital!!!
