Collection: Afrikaans

Afrikaans, rooted in the Dutch language, emerged in South Africa and Namibia, reflecting the regions' complex colonial histories. With influences from Malay, Portuguese, and indigenous African languages, it stands as a testament to cultural fusion. Written using the Latin alphabet, Afrikaans is known for its unique double negatives and grammatical simplicity. Once considered the language of the oppressor during apartheid, it's now celebrated as an integral part of the Rainbow Nation's linguistic tapestry, spoken by over 7 million native speakers.
