Fifty-eight UCT staffers who completed the isiXhosa course this year were awarded their certificates at a ceremony on 27 November. The Masithethe isiXhosa course for beginners and intermediate learners, which was completed by Tracey Dennis and Gadija Arend, was run by the Centre for Higher Education and Development's Multilingualism Education Project during the first and the second semesters this year. The three-month course is aimed at developing a multilingual institutional environment at the university. It was first launched in 2006, and since then over 450 staffers have participated. Although the medium of communication at UCT is English, the Language Plan indicates the need to use other languages, especially isiXhosa and Afrikaans.
