South African Sign Language Lessons

Finding a job, or applying for a new one, has become an increasingly complex task over the years, but the first step has always been to draw up a concise, but powerful, curriculum vitae (CV), which allows recruiters to quickly learn more about your experience, skills, and career goals.

In this week’s South African Sign Language lesson Karabo gives advice on how to go about compiling a CV.

Madhuva Madima

Candice Morgan sat down with Madhuva Madima recently to discuss her career as an Afro-pop and Gospel singer, and as an actress in Muvhango. The interview is not only a great way to learn more about Madhuva, but also to discover how her life contrasts with the character she portrays in Muvhango.

SASL-Talent

South African Sign Language Lessons – Talent

Some talents that we have serve us well in our career, while others are more difficult to adapt to generating an income. That shouldn’t stop us from developing them, either as a therapeutic hobby, or eventually as a career.

In this week’s South African Sign Language lesson, Karabo offers some advice to a young man who has been developing his talent as a hobby, but is a little apprehensive about taking the next step.

DTV-Madagascar

Madagascar

Madagascar

Madagascar is an island country off the coast of Southeast Africa. The island went from being a kingdom, to being part of the French colonial empire, to finally gaining independence in 1960. The country has two official languages – Malagasy and French – and ecotourism and agriculture are the primary drivers of the economy. However, many of the estimated 22-million living on the island are extremely poor.

The DTV team visited Madagascar ahead of Zwakala Africa 2016, and this week’s episode of DTV is dedicated to the highlights of this trip. Join us as we explore the capital city Antananarivo, important historical landmarks and showcase some of the local craftsmen.

Please note that this episode does not include a South African Sign Language episode.

SARS Burning Questions #3 – Income Tax

Income Tax is not the only tax payable to SARS, but it is the one that most people know about.

DTV got some SARS executives to answer your burning questions relating to tax in South Africa.

SASL-Cooking

South African Sign Language Lessons – Cooking

Cooking is a skill that is learned and developed over time; nobody is a natural born cook. Some people learn the skill early in life, while some people neglect it till later. But nobody needs to stay a bad cook for the rest of their life; graduating from a diet of 2-minute noodles to something that closely resembles a well-balanced meal is not as difficult as it seems. Especially if you have someone working alongside you.

In this week’s South African Sign Language lesson, Karabo presents a wonderful solution to a young man whose wife is not quite at home in the kitchen. And the solution is less about teaching the wife to cook, and more about the couple doing something together that benefits both of them, rather than punishing either of them.

DTV-Michael-Barth

Michael Barth

Michael Barth

Radio-controlled (RC) models is a hobby that dates back to the 1950s, and DTV recently met up with RC airplane enthusiast Michael Barth.

Advancements in radio-controlled technology, and the way the models are built, mean this hobby constantly challenges enthusiasts in a good way, but the biggest challenge is often finding spaces where it is legal to fly.

Thabo Ntatlo asks Michael Barth about all of these challenges, before Michael demonstrates his incredible skill controlling these miniature marvels.

Salochanee Reddy

The key to a happy life is maintaining a balanced lifestyle. But that isn’t always easy, so sometimes it is necessary to turn to a professional.

Thabo Ntatlo and Candice Morgan visit Salochanee Reddy at The EQuilibrium Wellbeing Centre, and learn more about the treatments and therapies offered, along with the benefits of each.

Their visit ends with both of them experiencing some of the treatments first hand, and they leave feeling more relaxed, and happier, than before.

SASL-Divorce

South African Sign Language Lessons – Divorce

Divorce is the termination of a marriage, and it is seldom a casual decision. While it has become more common to hear of marriages that end on mutually friendly terms, it does not mean that the process itself is completely stress-free, nor that other people aren’t affected by the divorce. Long-standing friendships can be tested, but most frequently it is children (regardless of age) who are most affected by the separation of their parents. This can vary from blaming themselves for the divorce, to unfairly isolating one of the parents, and even open rebellion against both parents.

In this week’s South African Sign Language lesson, Karabo offers some words of support to a young woman whose parents are divorcing.
