S. African university makes Zulu compulsory

4 posts in this topic

A leading South African university says it will make Zulu language classes compulsory for all first-year students from next year.

The decision by the University of KwaZulu-Natal is aimed at promoting "nation-building and bringing diverse languages together", an official said.

Zulu is among the most widely spoken of South Africa's 11 official languages.

Sounds like a good idea to me...

Makes sense. I would think it would be easier to teach Zulu at a younger age though. But I guess teaching English, Afrikaans and Zulu is a bit much for kids to take in.

Every South African I know can speak a fair bit of Zulu, enough to get by if needed.
