As part of UNESCO's 2019 International Year of Indigenous Languages (IYIL2019), SADiLaR will be celebrating the 11 official languages of South Africa by assigning each language to a month of the year. SADiLaR plans to host collaborative events, such as workshops and colloquiums, at various universities in South Africa to share ideas and take action in creating awareness of our languages and in working on the development of our languages and language resources. Each month of the year is dedicated to a specific SA language (as listed below), but the celebration events of each language will take place throughout the year due to availability of venues, speakers etc.
This is an invitation to anyone and everyone to join us on our adventure to celebrate the IYIL2019. Please join our social media pages for updates on events and feel free to contact us if you have any language-related news you want to share, or join us in creating language-related events.
