Hope you had a great day! For the next three months I am going to try to convey information to you that could help you to master some basic skills in Afrikaans. The aim of this blog is to help you as a parent to help your child with Afrikaans. I don’t have a blog yet aimed at children but might start one if there is a need. Your comments and feedback will be my guide to make this blog as useful to you as possible.
I am assuming that you have a basic knowledge of Afrikaans and Afrikaans vocabulary and I am starting at Grade 6 Afrikaans second language level. The easiest way for me to teach Afrikaans is to do it according to theme. This helps with building vocabulary and language skills and creates a ‘known environment’. The student then feels that there is something known in the unknown.
Here is the outline of the planned blogs for the next few weeks.
Theme 1: Food, cooking and recipes.
- 21 July My own recipe. Introducing vocabulary. Introducing vocabulary.
- 22 July Instructions How to give instructions and commands in Afrikaans
- 23 July Question words How to use question words in Afrikaans
- 24 July Speech: My own recipe. How to prepare a speech and assess it in Afrikaans.

Have a great evening!
