“Speaking a few words to a person in his own language, improves relationships and builds friendships. The Basic English Afrikaans Xhosa Zulu Aid by Isabel Uys is aimed at people of all ages who wish to learn a few words or phrases in any of these four languages. This small format book will easily fit into a schoolbag, handbag or cubbyhole. The words are arranged under subjects for easy reference. The 500 photos of the actual objects are clear and colourful.
This book should be very useful to adults, learners, teachers and also as a wonderful educational gift. With multilingualism becoming a necessity in South Africa, this guide is an essential addition to every household and library.”
