Western Cape Language Policy


The Western Cape Language Policy is a first of its kind in South Africa. The aim of the policy is to ensure the equal status and use of the three official provincial languages, Afrikaans, English and isiXhosa. It also supports and promotes South African Sign Language, marginalised languages and the other official South African languages. The policy is available in English, Afrikaans and isiXhosa.
