Setswana mini word marathon: 50th anniversary of Botswana's Independence

Mini-word marathon: 50th Botswana Independence Day

Would you like to be part of the Setswana living dictionary, and leave your contribution in a fun and easy way?

To extend the celebration of Botswana's 50th Independence Day, we are going to have a fun online session about Botswana's history and culture.

Join our Language Manager, Ms Warona Makafu, for our mini word marathon, when we'll get together online for a brief talk on Botswana's history, followed by a session where we will collect and translate vocabulary related to Botswana's cultural identity: food, music, dance, clothing and more!
