You have decided to learn isiXhosa because for a long time you have just been hearing a stream of verbal sounds as mother tongue speakers speak to one another.  You know that these sounds carry meaning and want to understand what these sounds mean.  In this program where you will encounter your first 500 isiXhosa words, your wish will come true. You will learn how these words are used in everyday exchanges in the home, we will talk about your family, have meals together, and then wash the dishes and tidy the house.  We will talk about colours, learn the basic rules of counting and also find out about the human body. We will move outside into the garden and talk about what we do there.  After that, we decide to go to various places such as the shop, the beach, school, church and even a game reserve. All in all, 25 scenarios.
Whether you are young or old, after learning to understand your first 500 words, those verbal sounds that you have been hearing for so long, will now have meaning and you will be able to start participating in conversation. An exciting prospect awaits you!
