For the past number of years staff members have been presenting workshops on dictionary use for school learners. The aim of this workshop is to encourage a culture of dictionary use amongst school learners. The event has been offered at a variety of venues, depending on the needs of and requests from various communities. Workshops have been held on the Mamelodi campus of UP, in Soshanguve and in Daveyton. The workshops have been sponsored by Afrilex, the African Association of Lexicography, and Oxford University Press (SA) has provided their bilingual school dictionaries (Northern Sotho / English) and (Zulu / English) at a reduced cost. Learners each receive a dictionary to take home, and hopefully, to use in school.
