Language Policy

Equilibria’s classes are presented in English. Books, class notes, hand-outs and other study materials are also provided in English. Since a large percentage of our students are Afrikaans speaking, we regard English tuition as important preparation for tertiary study. Most universities and colleges in South Africa use English as their primary teaching medium – it is therefore important that Afrikaans students become used to English tuition.

However, many of our lecturers are Afrikaans-speaking and one-on-one communication generally occurs in the student’s home language. Afrikaans students are usually allowed to complete projects and tests in Afrikaans.
