Xhosa Public Classes Cape Town

UPCOMING XHOSA PUBLIC CLASSES

“Dear UBuntu Bridge,
I joined your two introductory courses about five years ago. Since then I’ve been practising and learning as I interact. You gave us the right tools to go out and learn on our own. I work at XX Hospital and I love that now if our interpreter is off work, my colleagues call me to interpret in their treatment sessions! :-) Thanks,”
Ingrid Vr, 2016

STUDENT COMMENTS:

“I thoroughly enjoyed the course.  I can’t think of anything to improve upon.  The facilitation was superb. They made sure to maintain a speed that was comfortable for everyone, and also made us feel at ease to ask questions throughout the course.  The combination of the CD and book really worked well. The book was great for working in class and at home, while I found listening to the CD whilst driving to/from class was great to recap on the lesson. The cultural tidbits were so insightful and it offers so much more than simply learning the language without the context.  The facilitator was hilarious and made a great effort to make sure we were enjoying the course and didn’t get lost along the way. The course also exposed me to many interesting, like-minded people which only made it all the more fun.  I’m really keen on doing level 2.  Huge thank you to UBuntu Bridge for such outstanding work and efforts in bridging the gaps between the people of South Africa.  Enkosi”
