Funda Njalo was started by Dr Charmaine Diamond in 2006. Charmaine taught English, Afrikaans and Zulu for 12 years before deciding to open this training company. She has lectured Zulu at the University of the Witwatersrand and has co-written a series of primary school Zulu texts books called Masizwane. The company creates and distributes first additional language teaching material for isiZulu. In addition Funda Njalo also runs a number of courses teaching non Zulu speakers the basics of conversational Zulu.
Funda Njalo’s products aim to simplify teaching for teachers by saving them the time and effort of having to create their own material. We have games, posters, workbooks, flashcards and study guides to make teaching fun for teachers and learners.
We value any feedback positive or negative and encourage teachers to forward any suggestions to us so that we can make these the best teaching materials on the market for 1st additional language learners.
