Xhosa Feedback

“UBuntu Bridge’s classes inspired me more then I ever dreamed Xhosa classes would.  The side-effects have been the building of stronger relationships with some of my colleagues, building greater trust, and allowing me to feel genuinely part of the real society of our country.”

Alan Dickinson, Management Development Consultant, Applied Dynamics and Human Resource Director, SunAir International

“I enjoy learning Xhosa and I love the response I get from my colleagues and customers.  The UBuntu Bridge team that taught us is wonderful and very professional.  I would strongly recommend that companies make the most of their high value service.   I wish I had this opportunity 20 years ago.  Thank you for this opportunity to enrich myself and our working environment in a cultural and personal way.”
