“This is the first online course I have signed up for and I think it is really excellent.

The weekly Zoom conversations hold me accountable to make sure I have gone through all the material, and I really feel like I am making practical progress. The tutors are legends.

Before signing up, I was nervous that I wouldn’t be able to learn a new language, but the way the course is structured really does make learning feel possible!

The additional lecture to briefly go over the content is also super helpful!

I don’t think there is much you can do to improve an already excellent experience.

Ndiyabulela for this course and your team!  Enkosi kakhulu!”

Cultural & Language Immersions

YhoXhosa Village Retreats

  • In many ways the heart and roots of UBuntu Bridge, which started from a yoga practice in the lalies (rural villages), and a desire to build bridges of unity and shared prosperity in South Africa.
  • These retreats help nurture village communities and provide participants with an incredible relaxing experience of an older way of life.
  • An unforgettable, rare experience that dramatically improves your Xhosa speaking ability and appreciation of the culture!
