ABSTRACT
This article provides an overview of speech instruction in South Africa. The problem of how to achieve good speech is approached in many ways. In the Transvaal and Natal, the aim is for the primary and secondary schools for white children to have on their staffs some teachers who can cope with speech work. This ideal is not always reached, as many teachers, particularly in the Transvaal, are Afrikaans-speaking, and may not be sufficiently proficient in English to be really good teachers of speech. Some school principals allow speech specialists to come in as visiting teachers to conduct classes during school hours as part of the English syllabus. Others give facilities for classes to be held after school hours for the children who desire them, on payment of a fee. Most secondary schools stage a play at least once a year, and many have lively debating in dramatic societies.
