Founded in Vienna, Austria, in 2009, LETA® is a privately-owned professional training institute, which provides a complete programme of services for businesses, academics, individuals and English courses in Austria and South Africa.

LETA is an innovative language centre based in Vienna, Austria and Johannesburg, South Africa.

LETA provides an entry point for anyone, regardless of age and experience, seeking to learn or experience the English language. Alongside language teaching, LETA also offers creative learning experiences for native English speakers.

LETA was founded in 2009 by Precious Zeinzinger-Tuitz who now resides in Johannesburg, South Africa. Having worked in international business for a number of years, Zeinzinger-Tuitz changed her focus to language training after discovering an aptitude for teaching. After completing her English language training for children and adults, she started LETA with just seven students, however, her reputation quickly grew and within a year she was overseeing the teaching of more than a hundred students. A native English speaker, originally from South-Africa, Zeinzinger-Tuitz founded LETA on the principle that language learning can be fun, dynamic and more effective. Today, her ‘learning by doing’ methodology has seen hundreds of students successfully learn the English language and LETA’s language school stands out as an exciting new provider on the educational landscape.
