Welcome to the Afrikaans is fun blog. I am an Afrikaans first language speaker and have taught Afrikaans as a second language for 6 years. I really enjoy languages and love to see people learn more about languages and cultures. The aim of this blog is to guide you through everything you need to know regarding Afrikaans in order to conform to the South African environment. I target homeschoolers (I was a homeschooler myself back in the ‘90’s) but everyone is welcome! I welcome all suggestions and feedback. I will mostly focus on content suitable for grades 5-7 and will use themes. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
