Inspiring & Connecting

“UBuntu Bridge’s classes inspired me more then I ever dreamed Xhosa classes would.  The side-effects have been the building of stronger relationships with some of my colleagues, building greater trust, and allowing me to feel genuinely part of the real society of our country.”
 - Alan Dickinson, HR Director SunAir

Connect with Xhosa

Founded in 2006, UBuntu Bridge is a learning community of friendly tutors and students who are passionate about building cultural bridges for greater social cohesion in South Africa!  

Have fun, speak and connect with respect to the world of isiXhosa!    Let's go far together!



Practical & Effective

"I have been to three Xhosa courses before, but for the first time did I learn how to construct sentences and hey, wena NDITHETHA NGOKU (I talk now!)" - Philip Oktober, CEO Machaira Group

Free Video Course

UBuntu Bridge was started to continue the legacy of Madiba whose example of learning languages to bridge gaps was our greatest role model

Each year we honour Mandela Day by encouraging language learning with this FREE video Course.

Nicky D, South Africa
Level 1 Student, May 2020

"Enkosi for creating this online course (Level 1), ndithanda ukufunda isiXhosa! The self study+ zoom call format is helpful and I'm glad we have a Whatsapp support group because it makes the online learning feel more like a community. And Deon - thank you for teaching us in the zoom sessions, you are so patient and friendly with us. Ndiyabulela!"

Sophie B, USA
Level 1 Student, May 2020

"I have really been enjoying Level 1! This is the first online course I have signed up for and I think it is really excellent. The weekly Zoom conversations hold me accountable to make sure I have gone through all the material, and I really feel like I am making practical progress. Deon is a legend."

Samantha B, South Africa
Level 1 Student, June 2020

"Hey I just wanted to say enkosi kakhulu for this course. I have learned a dozen or so languages while living and working around the world and your teaching style and platform is amazing! It's making my lockdown bearable, can't wait for the next lesson, and now I want to learn Zulu too!"

Iona B, South Africa
Level 1 Student, May 2020

"It is fab. I am loving it. The pace is great, the materials are excellent and I really like the ethos of nation-building that runs through it. Ndiyabulela."
