- The South African digital community is wowed by a young teacher’s social media language he used in class as he shared a review with a learner
- It seems Mr Mkhonza decided to use slang for child and wrote ‘chile’ and that he can really deliver 'quality content' after clinching 48 out of 50 marks
- However, many social media users feel the modern-day educators are not teaching professional language to their kids
Our manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
A local guy is causing a stir on social media after raising a relevant topic regarding slang or social media language used by modern teachers. The man has sent a warning to the young teachers, telling them to chill.
@James_StPat999 is issuing a stern warning to the youthful yet professional teachers to guard against using informal language when marking their pupil’s books.
The Twitter account holder also shared two photos where Mr Mkhonza has given his learner 48 out of 50 marks but the notes contain some seriously unprofessional slang.
The pictures are going viral and Briefly News went to look at what Mzansi is saying about the hilarious post. The guy wrote:
“Hahaha, young teachers y’all need to chill!!”

“But guys is this acceptable to write on learners' scripts.”
“Thina we used to get abo "You can do better."”
“Hahahahaaa...I'm sure some Educator somewhere has already done it.”
“Young teachers have made this profession very interesting...It's fulfilling to see.”
“Language evolves every day, that could be an acceptable word in the near future.”
“Is it me or was the question mark misused by Mr Mkhonza?”
“They said we need to be relatable to our learners.”
