How prepared are new students for the language demands of higher education? This was again scrutinized in an interview today that Ina Strydom conducted with Tobie van Dyk and me. The topic: academic literacy. Ina Strydom presents the very popular radio programme ‘Taaldinge’ on RSG (Radio Sonder Grense) every Sunday morning, and we were astonished at the amount of positive feedback we received from both those who knew us and from complete strangers.
So: here is the link to the podcast: https://omny.fm/shows/taaldinge/taaldinge-23-april-2023.
The interview is in Afrikaans, but I’d be willing to discuss what was said with anyone who is interested, and who may not be fluent in this. Just let me know.
And yes! Tobie and I would very much like to have your feedback too!
