In this article the interactive computer-based nature of the Tsenang! programme for learning Beginner Setswana is explained. The structure and components of the programme are presented. The programme consists of four chapters which are divided into lessons. Specific functions, grammar, skills and lexical items are linked to the lessons. The programme also includes exercises for the assessment of the functions, grammar, skills and lexical items. The selection, order and systematic presentation of the lessons, functions, grammar, skills and lexical items as well as the exercises play an important role in the learning of Setswana in this programme. The learning process in Tsenang! is based on interaction and active participation i.e., the processes of learning and exploring new material, consulting related items, consolidating new knowledge and assessment.
