Our presenters are experts at teaching isiXhosa to non-native speakers and have a practical and interactive approach to learning. Jana Nel is a lecturer in the Faculty of Education, Stellenbosch University, where she trains student teachers in conversational isiXhosa. She is an enthusiastic and passionate lecturer — her isiXhosa roots began as an eightyear-old, and she went on to specialise in isiXhosa at university level. Jana believes that, by learning an African language like isiXhosa, you are enabling yourself to connect with your fellow South Africans on a deeper level. As part of the course, additional isiXhosa-speaking language experts step in as needed for participants to practice conversation and gain more cultural knowledge.  


All sessions will be offered in Stellenbosch at the University campus. Face-to-face sessions are subject to relevant Covid-19 regulations.
