CORPORATE TRAINING

Xhosa Fundis Corporate Courses offers quality Xhosa language and culture Training Courses for businesses, NGO’s, educational institutions, government departments and other organisations at their venues, in and around the Cape Town CBD. Our instructors are passionate, professional and personable.

Courses can run over a period of 5, 6, 8 or 10 weeks, depending on the organisational requirements. Lessons are facilitated once a week. Lesson duration ranges between 1 and 2 hours. We also facilitate a range of free-standing Workshops. Please see the Workshops page for more information on these.

Here are some other points to keep in mind, particularly with regards our language courses:
  • We have full accreditation with the ETDP SETA.

 

  • Our courses have a mother-tongue Xhosa speaker as the facilitator. This offers authentic contact with the culture, thereby deepening the learner’s experience.

 

  • Language taught on our courses has been carefully selected for what is most useful in everyday conversational Xhosa. Grammar and pronunciation are integrated as tools for understanding and using this language content in order to avoid parrot-fashion learning.

 

  • Our course materials are compellingly well-designed and engaging, as a result of eleven years of acknowledging and implementing learner feedback.

 

  • Our course teaches language skills and cultural understanding relevant to current daily interactions. This gives delegates the means to interact confidently with native Xhosa speakers.

  • With us, learning is supported between lessons and well beyond the course. For example, all delegates are given weekly take-home flash cards and pin-me-up cards for reviewing key phrases; the course audio CD can be played in the car at any time; delegates are encouraged to give a letter from us to a Xhosa-speaking ‘Practise Partner’ with whom they can build a relationship during the course. This allows for continued use of Xhosa once the course has ended. We also post regularly on our Facebook page, expanding further what has been learnt on our courses.

 

  • Our course allows the usual status dynamics between staff to dissolve. This, as well as our team building activities, significantly improves staff relationships.

 

“The course itself has gotten nothing but praise when classmates have discussed it among each other. The curriculum is really well structured in that you learn both vocabulary and grammar in every lesson and you are given multiple channels through which to learn – reading, writing, tests and games, the audio CD to listen to, pin-me-ups that adorns all of our homes now, etc.”
