VISION & INTENTION:

– Its a bi-monthly  (first and third Mondays) isiXhosa language (and culture) learning club.  You can pop in but commitment from you helps us to stay in service.  All levels welcome.
– we have set GOALS (see below) and also a WAY of engaging those goals (also see below).

It’s a space where you come to be inspired, to learn, to get feedback and guidance, sometimes from fellow learners.
Remember half the challenge to learning is not being consistent and not having peers motivating each other!  So lets be present, proactive and support each other!

HOW TO TEACH ISIXHOSA AS A FOREIGN LANGUAGE (TXFL):
– we intend to train our local Xhosa friends and others who join the evenings in our methodology for teaching isiXhosa.
– this will lead to an upskill in facilitation confidence and also to income opportunities, as well as increased options for local learners.

Suggestions welcome!  We hope you enjoy the club!  Come and make it a great space!

Siyabulela! Camagu!

 

***MONTHLY XHOSA SOCIAL CHALLENGE***:  LEARN THE GOALS

Each month we will announce a social event which you can attend with other learners in a Xhosa speaking space.

Use these next few lessons to learn phrases relating to greetings, learning isiXhosa, pleasantries and ordering food.  Then use the social event as an opportunity to support a Xhosa community and improve your isiXhosa too.

    Awe!

    Are you still doing the isXhosa meetups? Ndisafunda isiXhosa but I would love to join a true learning environment.
    I work in Muizenberg and will be able to come all the time.

      Hi Jack
      Asanda is holding space there as part of his own initiative on Mondays, including Xhosa food and township events.
      We are currently not involved after two separate stretches of months of trying to build momentum and far too many people saying they were keen and far too many not showing up.
      But he uses our materials as on this page. By all means pull through and get involved.
