About Us

What we're about

At Learn EzeeZulu ‘sasisincela ebeleni isiZulu’, directly translated, ‘we sucked isiZulu from the breast’, because of this we understand the intricacies of the language and have the ability to help a non-isiZulu speaker manoeuvre the challenges of the language without diluting it.

With Learn EzeeZulu non-isiZulu speakers acquire foundational skills, develop language techniques to confidently integrate and get exposure to isiZulu.

"If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head.

If you talk to him in his language,
that goes to his heart."
Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela

Why we do it

It is on this premise of Madiba’s words alongside that our passion is to facilitate the creation of relationships between isiZulu and non-isiZulu speakers, bridging of the gaps between cultures through language.

It is a known fact that isiZulu is the most spoken language in South Africa, the percentage of the population that either speaks, reads, writes or understands isiZulu is at 22% which loosely translates to 11.6 million people according to the census done in 2011.
