“I honestly loved the information and the honesty behind the presentation of the training. I feel we need more of this to equip the isiZulu teacher with the proper tools to be effective”
Thulani Hector Magagula, King’s School West Rand (2018)
“I am motivated by the facilitator’s stories of learning different languages and what they are doing in South Africa, it is a great initiative”
Jabulani Gumede, Kings school West Rand (2018)
“The difference in teaching is amazing, I’m even sitting in on the lessons!”
Principal, Garden Road Montessori (2017)
“One of our teachers is attending the teacher training workshops with ZuluMites and using her newly acquired language teaching skills with our Grade 0 and 1 classes. We have seen how this group has become enthusiastic speakers of isiZulu, using the words and phrases they are learning in other areas in the school and proudly sharing their new vocabulary with their parents and people they meet in shops and garages!”
Heather Barclay (Principal) Mimosa Montessori (2017)
Mimosa teachers and parents feel strongly about the importance of learning an African language. We are so thrilled to have this programme in our school. It has a strong theoretical foundation, is methodologically creative and the course is well-structured. I love the way that speaking Zulu is becoming part of the culture of our school since we began our relationship with Zulumites!
