Once a colony of Germany, and later South Africa, Namibia is a mixed bag of Southern African and European cultures and languages. This diversity is celebrated, despite the country’s modern struggles with political intervention. English is the country’s official language, and although widely spoken, many people lack proper grammar and reading skills; Namibians often learn the commonly spoken Oshiwambo at home. Additionally, Namibia is home to beautiful scenery, comprised of a coast, deserts, and wildlife reserves. Experience the dynamism of Namibia’s natural sceneries as you assist students in the improvement of not only English proficiency, but also computer literacy and health education.
