Towards the perfect dictionary and ideal dictionary user


The annual Afrilex Tutorial on dictionary use took place on Saturday 2 November in Mamelodi.


It was organised and co-presented by Danie Prinsloo. Stephen Mabule from the Department of African Languages of the University of Pretoria was the main presenter. It was a great success and 110 learners from 8 Secondary Schools in Mamelodi attended. Most of them now own a dictionary for the first time and know how to use it!


The event was sponsored by AFRILEX, the venue supplied by the University of Pretoria and Oxford University Press donated work books and pens and provided their Oxford Sepedi/English School Dictionary at a reduced price.
