Afrikaans is widely spoken in South Africa. Boys are constantly reminded of the importance of learning an additional language.

With keeping in mind that Afrikaans is spoken in most of the provinces in our country, it is important for our boys to learn the language.  Whenever they travel, they will be hearing it and therefore have to understand and speak it as well.  It will also be to their advantage to be capable to speak and write Afrikaans in the work place later on.

Our main focus is to help the boys understand and to communicate in Afrikaans.  We have a large number of Afrikaans Home Language speakers here at Glenwood, which makes it easier for the other boys, hearing it on a daily basis. Boys are encouraged to increase their vocabulary and communication skills.

Our boys are very fortunate to be taught by a very experienced staff who are almost all Home Language speakers.
