Say: "The nice fig is often full of worms"

Darren Maule and Keri Miller have been begging uThisha Sky to teach them a Zulu proverb. Finally, Sky has decided to share his knowledge and wisdom by teaching them one of his favourites. He also spoke about his favourite English proverb, but that didn't go too well. So we'll be sticking to the Zulu for now...

Say: "Congratulations on passing matric!"

Today is the day! The matric class of 2020 has been going through the most, not only during the exams but waiting on the results. But the wait is finally over. uThisha Sky thought that it only made sense that today's phrase should be a congratulatory one!

Say: "Can I get a plastic bag please?"

Another day and we have another great isiZulu class coming your way! Grocery shopping is something everyone has to do and having this phrase up your sleeve can only be helpful. uThisha Sky Tshabalala is always here to help and this sentence will definitely be one that will come in handy.

Say: "Where is the tuck shop?"

The kids are back at school and in today's Khuluma Nathi lesson, uThisha Sky Tshabalala is here to teach them the really important stuff. However, whether you are heading to school or not it's always important to know where the nearest food shop is.

Say: "I would like to make a reservation please."

While lockdown is still very much part of our reality, you can still (safely) go out and enjoy a lovely meal at a local restaurant! Need some help making a reservation? uThisha Sky Tshabalala has got you with his latest isiZulu lesson.

Say: "Where is the bathroom?" in isiZulu

Seeing as lockdown restrictions are relaxing just the tiniest bit, we can now go to a few more public places than before. uThisha Sky Tshabalala is here to teach you a very important phrase that you will probably be using quite a lot!

Say: 'Do you have a card machine?' in isiZulu

In Khuluma Nathi this Tuesday, uThisha Sky Tshabalala tells his class that sometimes, the good thing about language is that some words are related - even they why they sound. This is why you will find this isiZulu phrase/question fairly easy to pronounce.

Say: 'How do you drink/like your coffee?" in isiZulu

Mornings are for coffee and Keri has a habit of making coffee for the show producer. So after months of making him coffee, the producer has changed the way he takes his coffee. This prompted uThisha Sky Tshabalala to teach the team and listeners how to ask the question "How do you drink/like your coffee?" in isiZulu. He also asked the listeners to give it a try.

Say: 'How do you spell that/How do you write that" in isiZulu

It is the very first Khuluma Nathi lesson from our favourite isiZulu teacher, Sky Tshabalala, and he decided to start us off with a double dose. Sometimes we get the spelling of people's names wrong when we meet, so this sentence will definitely come in handy when we save phone numbers.

Say: 'The beach is closed today' in isiZulu

Following President Ramaphosa's recent COVID-19 address that the country is officially in the second wave of the pandemic, uThisha Sky Tshabalala wanted to use a phrase that many of us will be using this festive season. There will be no fun in the sun ( well, a least on the beach) and this sentence is so easy in isiZulu - just three words - and you can start with whichever word, the sentence will still make sense.
