Videos/Music

Here are some youtube videos of short comic videos and videos that help give you a feel of Southern Africa in different ways. The first videos have quite a lot of isiZulu and isXhosa, which are languages quite similar to isiNdebele. It is not the best for teaching you pure isiNdebele as it is a mixture of languages used in Southern Africa, but there are subtitles. Enjoy though, and listen to some pronounciation:

Here is a funny South African made short video in English mainly but at least it gives you some Southern African exposure to humor: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I35S5lt1vAY. Sharp sharp Sniper!
