Welcome to Non-Official Languages

 

The Constitution of South Africa acknowledges our cultural diversity and so our languages as a valuable resource. The South African government views multilingualism as a resource, hence the Department adopted the Language in Education Policy (LiEP) that advocates for additive bi-/multilingualism, thereby encouraging learners to model competency or knowledge of more than one language in their daily lives. The LiEP assumes that “the learning of more than one language should be general practice and principle in our society. That is to say, being multilingual should be a defining characteristic of being South African.
 
By learning a non-official language learners’ perspectives will be broadened, thus the holistic development of learners will be promoted.
 
The benefits of learning non-official languages are:
 
      Communication within and outside South Africa.
      Building international relations.
      Widening trade links with other countries.
      Creating opportunities in travel and tourism.
 
Improved career chances for learners learning non-official languages are:
 
§   Teacher / university lecturer
§   Translator / interpreter
§   P. A. in an international company
§   Journalist / correspondent
§   Tour / travel guide
§   Department of Foreign Affairs
§   Other countries’ embassies / consulates
§   South African companies in other countries
