TO GET YOU SPEAKING XHOSA as quickly as possible, we are going to give you the best, most crucial aspects of our courses, the golden nugget, for free, why?  Because we crazy! Worldwide, people need to start seeing each other for who we are and where we are from, we all have long, difficult journeys, hundreds of thousands of mixed ancestors living, struggling, fighting, giving, procreating, so that millions of combinations later, we are here, breathing, alive.  We need to develop and deepen our empathy and compassion for each other.  From there we can work together to create the world we want to give to our descendants, and even enjoy for ourselves!
If you can gain confidence rapidly to enjoy interacting with Xhosa speakers in their language…. Then you can leave more tricky learning and grammar (like the noun groups) for later!  The brain prioritises absorbing and remembering things it uses.  If it doesn’t see immediate practical application, it will delegate brain power to other distractions and demands, and boy do we have lots of those in modern society!! And WE get YOU talking, no matter how many courses you’ve tried before!  And its FREE!  MAHALA!  Did we mention that?  YHO! We are working on courses for INTERMEDIATE to ADVANCED learners, but really you can just purchase the awesome LEVEL 2 and 3 self-learning materials (audio and print), available in our store. Make sure you check your SPAM box for the first automated email response, and add our email address to your address book, contact list, or better create a smart folder which copies our emails for you so you can access them easily when you need to, but are still viewable in your inbox. By subscribing, you receive a sequential, automated email course.  Each email will include a link and password to your lesson for that day, which should be no more than 5-10 mins of video viewing and another 5-10 of practice in the day. Triggered from the moment you click the START COURSE NOW button in the intro email we send you, after subscribing. If you can commit and put in the time and focus for each lesson, you will be stoked with how much you can gain from the course, in just 8 lessons.  We will remind you, and try motivate you, but like anything in life, you must choose to act, and make something a good habit with time.
Even though this is FREE, it costs money to develop and operate, and we have as yet in 9 years, never had sponsors, though we will consider sponsors if there is an alignment of values and shared principles.  We will thus also be letting you know of materials, events and other services we offer that we know would make your learning better and quicker, if you become a supporting member of our community. Please leave a COMMENT below, including what you might hope is included!  This may guide some of the content and will keep me EXTRA motivated!  We really appreciate it, otherwise sometimes it feels like we doing this for a handful of disinterested peeps!
Thanks Eduan, yho, its a lot of work, but we got such a cool vision, hope to bring it soon!!! I have been reading through your website and I have found your story and your mission extremely inspiring.
Hi, I’m really excited about some online xhosa help – that some of it will be free is amazing! Due to a security breach on 2013-12-16, all passwords have been reset and members have had their new passwords emailed.

Xhosa-speaking peoples are divided into several subgroups with related but distinct heritages.
Presently approximately 8 million Xhosa people are distributed across the country, and Xhosa is South Africa's second most common home language, after Zulu, to which Xhosa is closely related. Vibrant colours, traditional dance and evocative images were part of the 2010 edition of the Rhodes Hindu Students Society’s (HSS) cultural show. It was held at the 1820 Settlers Monument on Saturday where more than 500 guests arrived, some of whom were decked in a variety of traditional glittery Asian regalia.
Guests were treated to a variety of traditional food, dance, theatre and fashion including pantsula dancers to add a bit of African flavour. Later, The Geetanjali Academy of the Arts from Port Elizabeth performed a number with traditional Xhosa dancers. It was 150 years ago when Indians first came to South Africa and the event not only marked the occasion but also highlighted India’s 63 years of independence which is celebrated on 15 August.
He added that he was inspired to go back to his motherland of Uganda to learn more about  his own culture. East London based Bollywood Dance Studio collaborate with traditional Xhosa dancers at the HSS cultural show to give audiences some variety.
Dear Editor - please publish (again) Municipal officials and Councilors salaries - and perhaps their daily account at Kentucky! I'm not against a name change but the process is flawed - residents seem deliberately excluded.

About Us PDN Photo of the Day displays photographs selected by the editors of Photo District News, a publication for photo professionals. Would be nice to have some recommendations included on how to, after and during the course, continue growing in our understanding of the isiXhosa language and both the traditional and modern Xhosa culture. However, some members haven't received a new password, and if you're one of them, you can request a new password here.

The main subgroups are the Bhaca, Bomvana, Mfengu, Mpondo, Mpondomise, Xesibe, and Thembu[1]. The society’s premier event, now in its 11th year, exhibited all that is Indian but added a touch of Africa.
Four vibrant, new generation South African Indians were the emcees of the evening and entertained the crowds throughout the  three hour long extravaganza, with funny yet thought-provoking dialogue. The guest of honour, Dean of Students Dr Viv De Klerk, chose to speak briefly about culture, noting that we tend to take it for granted, only noticing it when other people behave differently.

I am very excited about learning Xhosa so that I can communicate and connect with more South Africans. I have been practicing what I have learnt on unsuspecting people and it really does make a difference for the better, breaking the stereotypes that have formed in this country. It would be so great to get a better understanding of the tense and noun class structure … Thanks Ubuntu Bridge, good luck!
