We live in a culturally diverse country.
For us to truly appreciate this diversity means that we must acknowledge and appreciate other cultures.
One of the best ways to do this is to know the language background of our country.
We can start by upgrading the status of African languages and encourage primary school children to learn Zulu.
Children will start to develop empathy for others as well as appreciation and curiosity for different cultures and ideas that exist in South Africa
Society as a whole will benefit, as these children will grow to become caring citizens who can communicate with and appreciate people from other cultures.
A number of research studies have shown that children who have learned a second language at a young age demonstrate strong cognitive characteristics such as increased problem-solving skills, enhanced creativity, mental flexibility and the ability to multi-task.
The old, traditional method in learning a language was to learn to read and write, but language is based on sounds and the only way to really master it is to hear and speak it. This is why the Learneo Zulu Programme is so effective. The Zulu video lessons make learning engaging as children are required to engage themselves throughout the video lessons.
We use a variety of methods to practise different skills. The children will listen to the audio content, hear the pronunciation of the Zulu words, mimic the sounds and start to see patterns in these videos. They will read whatever is on the screen, and repeat the words they hear in various lessons.
They will also be completing activities after each lesson which will serve the purpose of letting them check whether they have learned the concepts that were taught in the lessons
