Write It Project

SADiLaR’s language development and testing node, the Inter-institutional Centre for Language Development and Assessment (ICELDA), has developed a series of videos, called Write It, to fill the gap by guiding students through writing.

Academic writing is key to academic success, but getting it right is not easy, particularly for students who are learning in a second or third language.  Some institutions offer modules in academic literacy and academic writing support, but not all students across South Africa have access to these kinds of support.

Videos with handouts for simple reference and optional online tasks have been made accessible in sign language and all 11 of South Africa's official languages. Click on the language below to view the videos developed for that language.
