On this web-site you will trip over some words in Sindebele what is my mother tongue. Don't mind I will explain them to you and if you like I will teach you some words in my language - think we will have much fun. You may already start in checking out this 'dictionary'.
"The Northern Ndebele language, isiNdebele, or Ndebele is an African language belonging to the Nguni group of Bantu languages, and spoken by the Ndebele or Matabele people of Zimbabwe. It is commonly known as Sindebele" (from: Wikipedia)
