Mna mntan’ omXhosa ndiyazidla ngolwimi lwam
As a Xhosa child I am very proud of my language
Me knowing my language is like knowing my roots and where I come from
When I know where I come from
I know where I am going

My language defines my true identity
I love my mother tongue
My language, my roots, my culture, my belief
My language is incomparable
