Just as it’s hard to speak languages you are not familiar with during your first try, three of the cast of American drama series ’Dear White People’ took their time to pronounce a few words in IsiZulu.

IsiZulu is the official language for the Zulu people of South Africa and particularly popular with the country but not everyone is able to speak it well especially foreigners. Three of the cast members – Logan Browning, Marque Richardson and Antoinette Robertson of the series attempted to understand and give the meaning to words like  “haibo!,” “bhek’ indaba zakho,” “umlungu,” “gatvol,” and more.

The series debuted on May 4 and the cast and crew members are using these and many other ways to promote the series which focuses on black discrimination in American IVY league colleagues.
