Language Excursion: Introduction to Cape Town

Author: · August 30. 2013 · Language Excursions

This week our students including our FEJO group went out to explore the city. So, let us introduce them to Cape Town.

What is a city without music? A lovely drumworkshop in Gugulethu, a township 15 km from Cape Town, was on the programme. During the morning we took a closer look at the history of drums, djembe & marimba , and in the afternoon Lucky and his friends showed us to rock all those fantastic instruments.

Now it’s time, to go back in time! Our next stop was Langa, a suburb found in Cape town and established in 1923. Langa is one of the many areas in South Africa that were designated for Black Africans before the apartheid era. We were there to celebrate Freedom of Movement!

At the last language excursion of this week we learned something about the tragic history of District Six. The District Six Museum Foundation was established in 1989 and launched as a museum in 1994 to keep alive the memories of District Six and displaced people everywhere.
