Random Post: My sibs and I are language challenged

My uncle (ma's brother) sent me an email today. Now you might be wondering about the title of the post. Well the email was written in Ndebele. It took me about 6 mins to plow through 6 or so sentences & my bro 15 mins. My sis was in between. When I sent back a reply it was in a happy mix of Ndenglish. More English than Ndebele. I never actually learnt how to read and write it properly since I lived in a Shona speaking area and learnt that instead. Sibs studied the language so they have no excuses. As such we are language challenged.
