Letters from our readers

Dear Learn and Teach
I want to further my education. I have passed standard five. Now I want to do standard six. Then I want to do my junior certificate. Please tell me where I can study.
Archie Dlamini

You can study at a correspondence college. You can find a list of colleges in the yellow pages. If you need money to study, you can try get a bursary. If you need a bursary, write to: The Bursary Officer, SAIRR, PO BOX 97, Johannesburg, 2000 – editor

Dear Learn and Teach
I am a domestic worker. Please help me. I work long hours. I want a happy Christmas. I will have Christmas with the dishes.
Happy Christmas to everybody.
Maria Dikobe

Thank you for good wishes. Most domestic workers work long hours. The law does not help them. But domestice workers have some other rights. We wrote about domestic worker rights in the magaxine earlier this month. We will send you a copy of the magazine. – editor

Dear Learn and teach
I write for a newspaper in Cape Town. I saw your story on “factory worker rights”. Can we use your story for our newspaper?
Kenneth de Bruin
Elsies River

You can use the story with pleasure. Anybody can use stories from the magazine. But please tell us before you use the story. -editor

Dear Lean and Teach
Thank you for your magazine. I though the story on mealie meal was very good.
Mealie Meal companies who care about our health must add vitamins to mealie meal. The vitamins will help fight a sickness called pellagra.
I want to tell the companies one thing. People need food to make them strong – not to fill their stomachs.
Fakazi Duma

Dear Learn and Teach
I really enjoy reading about Sloppy, Lizzie and Dumpy. But I worry about Sloppy. He always gets into trouble and he always has accidents.
V. Khumalo

Don’t worry. Sloppy is a tough guy. – editor

Dear Learn and Teach
Your story about Lady Africa was very sad. I think Lady Africa is a brave and wonderful person. Please give us more stories about such people.
L. Maluleka

Dear Learn and Teach
I read your magazine every night. When my English is good enough, I want to study standard five. I will study standard five at a correspondence college.
Jonas Kgole

Thank you for the letter, Jonas. We hope you do well. – editor

Dear Learn and Teach
I live in Namibia. I like reading your magazine very much. But I don’t like anything without music. Do me a favour. Write stories about music in the magazine and make me happy.
Roger Hovekie

Dear Learn and Teach
I really enjoy reading your magazine. When I finish reading the magazine, I always give it to somebody else.
I liked your story on skin lightening creams. I learnt about the damages of hydroquinone. After I read the story, I had a good look at the creams. I saw that all my creams have hydroquinone. Now I don’t use those creams anymore.
Most people use skin lightening creams because they want to lighten their skins. But some people buy the creams because they have pimples and spots. We must blame the chemists – they tell those people to buy the creams with hydroquinone.
Can I ask Learn and Teach a favour. Can you please give us a list of all the good creams?
Nomathemba Ndlebe

Thank you for your letter. We think your idea is very good. We will try print a list of the good creams soon.

  1. Fellow South Africans!

    I learned a lot from Learn and Teach Magazine. Thanks to team that established Magazine of its kind.

    My political clarity is immeasurable because I learned from the Best. I miss that hilarious pages of Sloppy. Especially that one: “Buying car from crooks you will ride on bicycle!”

    Please resuscitate that good political asset.


    • Serogole Leshilo…sorry about the late reply. Please forgive us, but it was a busy time last year. please tell us more about yourself: were you a student? a worker? Meanwhile, we will try to get the Sloppy artist and cartoonist Gori’s email for you. thenyou can talk to your hero
