Speaking in tongues

April 5, 2007 at 6:36 am (French, isiXhosa, language)

I need to learn a new language now. Seriously, you can’t live in SA and not know a black language. Being Capetonian, it would make sense to learn isiXhosa so I’m trying to get into that frame of mind. After my disastrous run-in with French at varsity (je nais se pas was my favourite phrase – meaning I don’t know) I have to really want to do this to make it happen. I’m a bit nervous to try it out because I think I’ll seriously suck at it but I guess I have to try anyway.
Just imagine how many conversations I’d be able to eavesdrop on then.
