Making Learning Fun
We are dedicated to the integration of cultures though language learning and we aim to make the learning of African Languages as easy and fun as possible.
The Story of Abuti
I have always wanted to learn one of the official languages of South-Africa (Apart from English and Afrikaans). Late in my twenties I decided to take on this challenge and in my journey of learning Setswana I soon realized that there was an enormous need for high quality learning materials in all of the African languages.
I had used the Feynman Technique to acquire new languages for many years and in this sense, developing materials to teach others while at the same time learning the language myself seemed like an obvious next step.
Abuti was born out of the recognition of a need for educational materials and we strive to keep improving our products in order to support teachers in various areas of teaching as best we can.

What Our Teachers are Saying
There’s a workbook, animations, songs, a teacher’s guide… everything included in this fantastic product. Nna ke rata Abuti thata! (I love Abuti!)
I love that I can just facilitate the lesson. I don’t need to speak the language myself.

The children learn while they are enjoying the whole program and I think that is the most important thing.
