Feedback from our students:

All the Xhosa Fundis teachers are so helpful and personally involved in the teaching. They help at whatever level is needed. Xhosa Fundis is a language school like no other! (Cathy Wahl – April 2021)

I just wanted to let you know how valuable the “Use it, don’t lose it” courses have been for me. I think these are a GREAT addition to your course offerings. The format and flow of the lessons are spot on. More than perfect! Getting people to think from English to Xhosa is the key and these lessons were great for that.
I would definitely attend any more  “Use it, don’t lose it” courses that you offer!

(Bianca Browne – February 2021)

I have thoroughly enjoyed my lessons. I found Masi to be delightful, bright, an excellent tutor with  a sparkling personality. He was patient and thorough in his explanations/guidance and fully ‘engaged’ at all times. (Graham Vass – 2020)

I thoroughly enjoyed Course 2 with Sibu! His calm, patient and gentle nature greatly enhanced my learning. His sense of humour and clear passion for the language kept us all engaged and enthusiastic. (Joanie Mitchell – 2020)

I have enjoyed every minute of my time learning isiXhosa with Xhosa Fundis. The weekly online classes with Masi have become the highlight of my week. Masi is an excellent and enthusiastic teacher, who makes learning a new language both fun, and interesting. The courses are exceptionally well structured and managed by Kyle and her team. My only regret is not starting sooner. (Joseph Rom – 2020)

I’ve just finished Course 2 with Sibu. Many thanks to Sibu – he’s a great teacher and really challenged us to expand our understanding of Xhosa in this second course. (Maike Hamann – 2020)

I really enjoyed the course and am definitely going to do no 3. Sibu was great. He explained things well, had a great sense of humour and all round an excellent teacher. (Sandy Mitchell – 2020)
