Thetha isiXhosa – everyday conversations
Start date: 7 September to 18 September 2020
Duration: Two weeks (six one-hour sessions)
Format: Zoom sessions with our isiXhosa teachers
Live sessions: 15h00 to 16h00 Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays
Cost: R1000 per participant/family
Space is limited to 20 participants/families (families that sign up need to live together, only one Zoom login per family allowed).
The main purpose of this course is to encourage families to learn to speak isiXhosa to each other and to strangers they meet in their daily lives. We want to celebrate our differences and similarities as a nation, while embracing our social, cultural and language diversity. We also aim to build bridges that close our social and language barriers as a South African community. The course will include fun conversations, basic vocabulary, phrases and songs that will assist each of you to increase your Xhosa speaking ability when going to the shops, petrol station or when speaking to your colleagues and classmates.
There will be a range of themes as the course content evolves. Our teachers Thabo Sabeko and Wandiswa Jonga will determine some of themes towards the end of the course, based on the input from the participants.
