isiZulu is one of the Nguni languages that one can find in most parts of Southern Africa. The Nguni languages are isiZulu, isiXhosa, isiNdebele and isiSwazi. The advantage of knowing isiZulu is that one can communicate with people from the Nguni cluster and even with people who are not Ngunis outside the borders of South Africa.

Through class discussions and many other activities, the Department has made isiZulu exciting to learn. With the integration of language skills such as reading, writing, speaking and listening, the students at Waterfall College have produced work of a pleasing standard. The multi-media approach through classroom resources, teamwork and paired work has enabled our students to enjoy the language.

The isiZulu Department, as with other subjects at Waterfall College, has the privilege of working closely with isiZulu teachers from other independent schools, sharing ideas and materials.
