We provide online and in-person group courses for the public  – scroll down for the public courses schedule.

We also offer Zoom AND in person courses for corporates, organisations or anyone who books for a group (min. 4) and provides a suitable venue (if in-person) at an arranged time. 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.

WINTER SLIDING SCALE:

Our annual winter sliding scale is coming into effect from the 25th of May 2022 this means that any course you book between the 25th of May to the end of August 2022 you can choose to pay an amount that fits your budget from as low as R1500 – R1980.

We know that times are tough due to COVID and so we don’t want money to be the reason you don’t learn with us. We hope the sliding scale will make it possible for everyone to learn with us.

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)
