The 2018 release of Marvel's Black Panther film illuminated the beauty and flavor of African culture. While Wakanda is fictitious, the Wakandans spoke the real-life South African language called isiXhosa.
Here are a few phrases in isiXhosa to pique your curiosity:
Wamkelekile kuWakanda!: "Welcome to Wakanda!"
Ungubani igama lakho?: "What is your name?"
Kunjani?: "How are you?"
Enkosi: "Thank you."
Through 12 modules (each 1-hour in length), you will learn isiXhosa greetings, pronunciations, and as many conversational phrases as you can retain. We'll share South African history, culture, food, clothing... and, of course, the infamous clicks that are characteristic of isiXhosa.
This course is perfect for you if:
- You plan to travel to South Africa for business or leisure.
- You've been searching for classes that teach African dialects.
