Our aim is to further the intellectualisation of isiXhosa so that it can be used across disciplines at various levels of education. Objectives of the African Language Studies Department

  • To promote and advance scholarship in African languages,
  • To promote multilingualism through 2nd language acquisition programmes,
  • To facilitate student access and retention,
  • To set up a multimedia facility which is instrumental to all the above.

Students in the African Language Studies Section can be assured of the real practice of ubuntu (the spirit of humanity – sharing and togetherness).
