Ekuqaleni kwalenyanga, sibuze abafundi bezindaba zethu ukuthi bakwazi ukukhuluma izilimi ezingaki, nendaba yokuthi bakwaze kanjani ukuzikhuluma.

Sihlangane no-Ingrate ngesonto eledlule ukuze sifunde kabanzi ngendaba yakhe.

Ocingweni lwevidiyo, usitshele ngempilo yakhe esemncane nokuthi yamazisa kanjani ngesipho sakhe sokufunda izilimi.

“Ngihlale e-Alex isikhathi eside! Ngakho ngakhulela e-Alex lapho esihlangana khona nabantu abaningi futhi sithola amathuba amaningi,” esho.

Uqhube wathi, “Izilimi engazifunda kuphela esikoleni isiBhunu, isiNgisi neSiPedi. Izilimi eziningi ngazifunda ezitaladini e-Alex.”
