Language Excursion: South African History

Author: · December 6. 2013 · Language Excursions

South Africa has a long path of history.  This week we focused on that history so that our students could learn more about South Africa during Apartheid, and how it is trying to make changes. We started with a Language Excursion to the District 6 Museum. Our students listened to the real-life stories of our wonderful host, Noor, and they got an overview about District Six during apartheid.

Camissa, meaning ‘the place of sweet waters‘ is the ancient Khoi name for Cape Town. On this Language Excursion our host Caron, founder of the Reclaim Camissa, showed us the stories of the people, culture and development of the city, by following the path of water. We followed the Camissa on a short journey down the mountain.

Our last stop was to Langa, together with our students we took a 1th class train ride and celebrated Freedom of Movement. After this we visited the Pass Museum to find out about the Dompas that was used during Apartheid.
