Extra 2 hours at school per week for Grade 1s who pilot African language

The department of basic education will from next year increase schooling hours in some schools in order to accommodate the teaching of an extra and compulsory African language.

Through the project, the department will force all schools to teach at least one African language as a first additional language, meaning it will become compulsory for all pupils to take an African language up to Grade 12.
