COST: The cost of a course covers the weekly Zoom group lessons as well as the course materials. These include a Handbook, a Workbook and audio tracks all sent digitally. There is the option of purchasing hard copies if you are able to collect from Plumstead.

Our regular 5-week courses incl. materials is R1880.  However, for those who need it, please make use of our sliding scale. This means that you are welcome to choose an amount that fits your budget anywhere between R1480 and R1880.

The 8-week grammar course incl. materials costs R2350. Here the sliding scale of any amount between R1950 and R2350 that you can afford, applies.

If the cost still prohibits you from attending, we can consider a trade of a service, product or skill that you can provide. Please contact Kyle via email info@xhosafundis.co.za to discuss.

Corporate/School staff/other groups: Please email Kyle for a quote. These are scheduled and priced differently to the public courses as they often include a lot more administration and offer benefits related to group privacy and schedule flexibility.

MATERIALS IN HARD COPY: If you would like to purchase and collect hard copies of the materials, this can be arranged at an additional but discounted price for learners on a course. You would need to be able to collect the materials from Plumstead in Cape Town.

Course materials include:

  • a handbook
  • a workbook
  • audio tracks
  • certificates (for those who have not missed more than one lesson)

To pay via EFT, please scroll down to the bottom of this page for bank details.

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 – 2021)

I just wanted to let you know how valuable the courses have been for me. The format and flow of the lessons are spot on. More than perfect!
(Bianca Browne – 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)
