Kaylin on Fluently speaking IsiZulu
He learned isiZulu while living in the crime-ridden Bhambayi informal colony near Durban. Soobraminian is significantly more fluent in IsiZulu than in any other language. He learned IsiZulu while still in creche with black children who refused to befriend him if he didn’t speak the language.
“I used to go to a creche with only black people,” Kaylin says. “So the other kids said if I wanted to be friends with them I should learn to speak isiZulu or else they would stop hanging out with me.”
So he did learn the Zulu. He was proficient by the time he reached primary school.
