Founder of UBuntu Bridge - Xhosa and Zulu language teaching company.
idea worth spreading: Language learning - bridge to a better world
Craig Makhosi Charnock studied Psychology, Philosophy and Film Studies, with a lifelong career in comedic and dramatic performance on the side. Following an 8 month rural stint as a trainee sangoma, Makhosi’s calling shifted into guiding people through the transformative process of learning to speak Xhosa through his company UBuntu Bridge (www.learnxhosa.co.za), which also facilitates intercultural immersion experiences in rural villages and townships. More recently Craig's musical persona has emerged as Quite a White Ou (www.quiteawhiteou.com), who sings in Xhosa and English, with the intention of breaking down racial stereotypes, inspiring language learning and as potential compensation for the sometimes non-existent salary of a self-employed teacher.
