Regardless of how long you stay in South Africa, you will be treated to the fascinating fusion of languages that dot our everyday life. None more so than the emotive and often guttural sounds of Afrikaans. The cup of coffee you made was met with a grateful, “Lekkerrrr!” (nice). Your story about having a piece of toilet paper stuck to your shoe provoked an, “Ag shame, man!” (sorry to hear that). Then there was the time you met a girl in that pub in Margate and you were just about to kiss her when her boyfriend came running in to “wat kyk jy boet” (we think you can guess this one.) Learn more about this rich and diverse language.
