  •  digital equivalent of 7 audio CD’s worth (over 8 hours) of interactive Mp3 tracks covering the content of the courses, step by step.
  • interactive audio means that they leave a space between the English and the Xhosa for you to pre-empt the answer and then another gap after the Xhosa for you to repeat the Xhosa out loud.
  • This helps the mind remember phrases, vocab, constructs, but also helps one begin to emulate the sounds and get a feel for the rhythm and sound of the language.

“THE AUDIO WAS GREAT!  They really help to get the sound, the rhythm and tempo of the language right” Gene Falk

“They are so straightforward and easy to follow, thanks.”  Leila Codron, Seva Unite

“UBuntu Bridge’s classes and materials 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, SunAir

“Thank you for a fantastic training!!  I need to compliment you on the excellent quality of the CD’s and the learning materials. I am glad we chose UBuntu Bridge to learn Xhosa!”  Minnie Bentley, Cape Town Tourism

“For anyone wanting to learn Xhosa, I would highly recommend this course, it’s amazing how quickly you can pick it up with practice and was also very interesting to learn about the culture which enlightened me on some things I wondered about, like the loud speaking, but now I understand why it’s done this way by our Bhuti’s and Sisi’s” Revaan Jutzen, MHG
