It’s my first post and I will blog on a subject that is on the mind of billions of people.
No, I’m not going to predict who’s going to win.
I just want to give a small glimpse of the culture and particularly of spoken languages in South Africa.
Theare are many of them and for now I will just talk about one – Afrikaans. Watch this nice music video from Lianie May called Jy Soen My Nie Meer Nie
Why does it sound so German you ask ? Well Afrikaans traces it’s origins from Dutch and about 13% of South African population speak it!
I created an Afrikaans study set for Sing And Study software to improve your listening comprehension and just have fun !
