Designed to be a step-by-step guide to isiZulu; this guide is aimed at the layman and student of comparative languages and contains a detailed list of vocabulary and covers aspects of grammar. English and Afrikaans translations are provided throughout. Previously; African languages were not afforded the same status in South Africa as English and Afrikaans. Now; however they are included in the 11 official languages. Every chapter begins with an orientation to help the learner. The pictorial vocabulary in the first chapter enables easy reference and visual associations.
