This term the Grade 10’s started with a theme on Afrikaans rappers.  The first rapper that we are looking at is the very popular Jack Parow of “Cooler as ekke” fame. They were introduced to this colourful rapper by studying an article about him as a comprehension test.

Today they did a listening exercise with a difference!  They watched an interview with Jack and his friend Hardus van Deventer about their program, “Dis hoe ons rol” on Youtube and then had to answer questions about it.

Skye, Finn, Emily and Chelsea loved watching the Jack Parow interview.

The Grade 10’s will also spend some time studying other Afrikaans rappers like Hemelbesem and Early B.  I trust that touching on topics that are relevant to teenagers will build a positive attitude towards Afrikaans!
