|AcceLearning: Business Aptronym|
Here is the story behind the portmanteau, a fancy word, (coined by Lewis Carroll, meaning a new word formed by meshing sounds from two words and combining their meanings) of "AcceLearning"; the business name was created by blending the words accelerate and learning. This name reflects the results of the programs: faster learning speed.|
