The University of Cape Town (UCT) was lauded for its commitment to multilingualism, including teaching/learning of African languages, at a recent Universities South Africa (USAf)-supported Language Resources Audit. This after a USAf delegation conducted interviews with staff and students in a bid to assess UCT’s implementation of the New Language Policy Framework for Public Higher Education Institutions in South Africa. Promulgated in 2020, the policy is aimed at addressing the underdevelopment and underutilisation of official African languages at higher education institutions, while simultaneously sustaining the standard and utilisation of languages that are already developed. The aim of the audit was to provide the Department of Higher Education and Training with insight on resources available for the teaching and learning of, and in, African Languages.
