SANTS Private Higher Education welcomes Ms. Anelisa Thengimfene to the Academic Department. Ms. Thengimfene has been appointed as a lecturer, specializing in isiXhosa. South Africa has twelve official languages across all nine provinces.
Multilingualism forms a fundamental basis for teaching and learning and teachers play a vital role in overcoming language barriers in classroom settings.
The policy on teaching qualifications, titled The Minimum Requirements for Teacher Education Qualifications stipulates that teachers should be proficient in the use of at least one official South African language as a language of learning and teaching (LoLT), and partially proficient in at least one other official African language, as a language of conversational competence (LoCC).
SANTS provides tuition in English as a medium of instruction, formal communication, academic literature, and research. The language focus areas for Home Language Teaching as the language related to teaching and learning of the school’s language and other subjects, are Afrikaans, English, isiXhosa, isiZulu, Sepedi, and Setswana. This makes SANTS particularly unique in Higher Education.
SANTS believes in providing students with not only quality content but with qualified professional lecturers who will take them to even greater heights academically and further equip them with the knowledge and skills necessary for teaching and learning in multilingual classrooms.
Congratulations to Ms. Anelisa Thengimfene on her appointment. We warmly welcome you to SANTS and believe that together we will continue to strive to take quality education to the people!
