Wat je gaat doen

We meet at Bridge Books, where Thabiso starts the class with introductions -- learning how to introduce each other in isiZulu, and also in tsotsi taal -- the urban slang that most people in Joburg actually use every day.

Once everyone has had a chance to practice that, we move onto the main course! Literally. We'll learn about food and drink in isiZulu, including traditional meals, modern foods and snacks, and street food.

That also includes how to buy food -- ordering food, paying for it, and getting change.

Then we take a short break.

Next we walk four blocks to the Joubert Street market, where we practice our new skills by buying some snacks, and sitting down at our favourite street food stall to sample local eats.

Don't worry if you have dietary restrictions. You don't have to eat anything you don't want to! And there's plenty of veg options.

After that we go back to Bridge Books and practice our farewells.

Waar je naartoe gaat

Bridge Books: We'll be having the class at our store in the historic Rand Club building, which was built in 1904. The entrance to Bridge Books is on the Commissioner Street side of the building. The doormen will be waiting to direct you.

Joubert Street market: This market is next to a park that is an anchor of the new Literary District. We love it because of all the booksellers who work here, but there's also some really great food.

Meer tips

We only take you to eat at places where we eat ourselves, and which have health certificates. We can wash hands at the book store, and that will actually be part of the meal. It does get hot, so you may want sunblock or a hat. In the event of heavy rain, we'll bring food into the store.
