Were you looking to take Xhosa lessons in Port Elizabeth?
If you were, you have come to the right place! Like the many surfers on Port Elizabeth's beaches, Superprof has tons of teachers ready to help you learn to speak the language fluently. Many of the Superprof Xhosa tutors are Xhosa Natives. However, you may also find a Superprof tutor in PE who is not a native Xhosa speaker.
Would you prefer to learn Xhosa with a native speaker or would a second language Xhosa trainer work too? The truth is native Xhosa speakers are well versed in the language and can teach you to speak the language as smoothly as they do.
Then again, you would not accomplish your goal of learning Xhosa if you choose a random Xhosa-speaking person to teach you. Language trainers need not only be proficient in speaking a language but they need to know how to train well. You might want to learn some Xhosa from your Xhosa-speaking friend but you will find that your friend lacks the skills and expertise to help you overcome any language barriers that you may face.
By visiting the Superprof site and selecting one of our Xhosa tutors, you are bound to get trained to the level of your choice with trainers who have the needed skills to help you become proficient in the language. So will you pick a native Xhosa-speaking tutor from the Superprof site or will you feel more comfortable learning with a second language Xhosa speaker?
Xhosa is the second most spoken language in South Africa. While most of the African language speakers in South Africa speak Zulu, Xhosa is spoken by about 8.2 million people across Africa with the majority of the Xhosa speakers calling the Eastern Cape their home.
Are you planning on relocating to the Eastern Cape and that's why you would like to learn how to speak Xhosa? There could be multiple reasons as to why you want to learn how to speak this language but why is there a need for you to take professional Xhosa classes to advance your skills in the language?
The Xhosa language which previously had a slightly different spelling (Xosa) is referred to as a Bantu language. It is a member of the South-eastern Bantu group of the Niger-Congo language family. The language is quite prominent; however, it is an unusual language. The reason why formal lessons are advocated when it comes to Xhosa learning is that the language itself is rather difficult to learn.
The reason it is such a strain to learn the language is that the consonants are uncommon and the language sounds quite aggressive. Mastery of the right tone to perfect utterances that are needed for this tonal language is also very important. The language consists of certain English sounds but the 15 clicks used in the language are quite unfamiliar to the English speaker.
There are ejectives and implosives in the language as well which would be hard to grasp on your own. You must remember that knowing how to speak any of the official languages in South Africa automatically improves your employment opportunities, across the country.
People who choose to pursue the Xhosa language specifically for career-related reasons spend much time perfecting the language. These Xhosa students sit for approximately 3 hours per day studying the language for 5 days per week. However, if you are just learning the language as you find the Xhosa culture fascinating, the commitment that you need for mastery of the basics of the language is not as much.
While the best way to discover a culture behind a language is through literature and language, you cannot expect to learn this complex language alone. Having the right language trainer to assist is vital so that your grammatical utterances will be flawless too.
Speaking another language is highly beneficial as being able to speak a new language means making new friends and getting to interact with more people. Knowing how to speak isiXhosa will help you empathise with the people who speak it.
This means that by learning the language, you will be developing your soft skills which are essential skills in everyday life and especially important to have in the workplace. If your significant other speaks the language, perhaps you need to make the most of the opportunity to learn the language too.
In this way, your relationship will thrive as there will be no unnecessary communication barriers or room for misunderstanding due to language differences. Personally, your relationship will be far better if you and your partner can openly communicate in the same language.
While better social relationships can be formed when you learn Xhosa, the language can also be the basis of the formation of more professional relationships. Understanding the Xhosa culture is a way of interacting better with clients. The more fruitful your relationships with clients are, the happier you will be with your performance. Feeling confident and happy about your work performance leads to feeling content with yourself.
Xhosa tutors are skilled language trainers who have a sound command of the language, ensuring that you receive great content, both in terms of practical and theoretical content.
You can find tutors who are creative in their teaching methodology, and this will help you in your pursuit of Xhosa language learning. All Xhosa tutors are competent and knowledgeable and use the best methods to simplify the language learning process for you.
Having a Xhosa private tutor who is approachable and friendly will allow you to feel at ease when during your lessons. You will feel free to ask as many questions as possible so that you can better understand and gain mastery of the language.
If you choose a Superprof tutor, you will liaise with the tutor initially via email to set up your first class. Most Xhosa tutors on the Superprof site offer their first lesson for free so that you can get a taste of what to expect. You can thereafter identify the best time or times for these Xhosa lessons.
The decision of when you want to take Xhosa lessons rests solely in your hands. You can also choose between taking online lessons or face-to-face lessons and this choice will yet again be based entirely on your preference.
