An Outsider’s Perspective

Season 5 Episode 45

Thu, 5 Feb 2015 10:00pm

“A lot of the people around me were very ignorant on what Africa really is, I think they just bunched it up [as if it were] one place and doesn’t have 50 odd some countries in it”

“I do find English isn’t the major language…and its does create a bit of a barrier, but not a barrier that would put you off coming here”

It’s all about perspective! Xenobia, Elena, Renee, Richard and Ro, five students from the US and UK talk about their experience in South Africa. They muse on the nuances that often go unnoticed, concealed by everyday life. They touch on race relations, social norms and language barriers they’ve observed from their outsider’s perspective.
