Thanks so much to everyone who took courses in 2021 – we really appreciate your support and hope to see you again in 2022 to extend your skills. If you didn’t manage to attend in 2021, now’s your chance. We’d love to have you onboard!

We will continue providing online (Zoom) courses for the public in 2022 (schedule below). We offer both Zoom AND ‘in person’ courses for organisations or anyone who books for a group (min. 4) and provides a suitable venue.

Our public online Courses cost R1980 each, however, we will continue to offer our sliding scale for those who need it, to pay an amount between R1580 to R1980. Private group courses booked by organisations and/or individuals are priced differently. Please enquire for info.

Our series of 8 courses focus on building conversational fluency. Start with Course 1 (for absolute beginners) and progress from there. Here’s the Courses Schedule for January to March.

Our regular 5-week courses incl. materials is R1980 for 2022.  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 R1580 and R1980.

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.

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)
