Masabelane ngesiXhosa! That means, ‘Let us share in isiXhosa’. We are inviting you to come and share in the language and culture of isiXhosa during your lunch hour.

This is an eight-week course (two-hour sessions per week), open to Stellenbosch University staff members. Our Masabelane course aims to teach you about the isiXhosa language and its culture, and to enable you to engage in meaningful conversation at beginner level. Through this course you will empower yourself to put multilingualism into practice in the office and in the lecture hall.
