Alternative isiNdebele greetings

Salibonani bangane (nice to see you friends).

If you are just starting your journey to learn and have fun with isiNdebele, please look at the first posts at the bottom of this page (scroll down) and work your way to this, the newest post.

To continue with learning about the best isiNdebele greetings, see the new lesson 12 here:


Kulungile, lamhla, let us briefly talk about different options for greeting in siNdebele. For example, we can use the verb 'ukubona' (to see) or 'ukubingelela' (to greet):

  • ubabone ekhaya/ abantwana - greet those at home/ the children for me (or literally 'see them at home/ the children'). isiNdebele is a cool language hey?
  • ubabingelela abantwana - greet the children

Remember to give a handshake with your greeting. Until next week, have fun, bakhithi.
