A Zulu Second Language course
Sanibona III aims at guiding the learner in an interesting and stimulating way through more advanced structures which he/she will have to be able to use and comprehend by the time he/she has reached grade 12.
Sanibona III is a Zulu second language classroom course which follows Sanibona II, Sanibona I and Ninjani. Sanibona III is aimed mainly at learners in grade 10 and the first part of grade 11, although learners who started learning Zulu in the junior primary may use it in grade 9. Role play is a central part of the course and learners are encouraged to engage in role play frequently in order to build oral competence in isiZulu. Role play situations have been designed to interest the high school learner. A variety of useful and fun topics, situations and readings have been included and provide material for creative work.
Topics include the beach, future careers and dreams, taltents, friends and their interests, film reviews, articles about sports such as football, radio phone in programmes, travel, road safety, the home and health. Sanibona III makes language learning and enjoyable experience for the high school learner. A CD of the conversations from this book is also available for purchase.

This book was key to my learning of Zulu, taking me from a very basic, introductory understanding to feeling like I had a grasp of the language and its grammar. New concepts are woven into what one has previously learned in a way that makes learning easy and rewarding. Indispensable.
