As a linguist and a language teacher, I often find it interesting to introduce this song to my students. However, for some reason, the volume of the original video available on YouTube is too low, and I found it rather difficult to play it in class and let the students hear what Miriam Makeba has to say about her language. And since the subtitles are in Dutch, they are not very useful to my students either (who are not native English speakers in the first place). Therefore I edited the video, tuned up the volume, made it widescreen, and added English subtitles. I hope this will also help those who are interested in this song and the Xhosa language.
