Starting early is important. Children that speak more than one language will succeed in different environments with different people.
Afrikaans for beginners
I believe if you can speak English it is not that hard to learn Afrikaans. You just need to take it slow and listen to the words.
Working with Afrikaans people
Conversational Afrikaans is fluent language and it is not hard to understand.
Having Afrikaans friends
When you understand Afrikaans, you will understand the working environment of people speaking in Afrikaans better.
Reading and writing Afrikaans
Most of my family and friends are Afrikaans. This helps me to communicate easily in Afrikaans and it also helps me to stay up to date with the language and the culture.
Understanding Afrikaans movies
Afrikaans is quite easy to understand. I got excellent marks in school for Afrikaans reading and writing.
Afrikaans lifestyle and culture
Growing up as an Afrikaans speaker I am able to understand and formulate ideas in Afrikaans. I understan why people say the things they do and why they act in some ways.
I am a warm person that loves people. With my educational background I know how important development is and that is why I want to teach. My passion is helping people and I thrive on challenges. I am a hard worker and I make sure to always prepare before I take on new challenges.
I taught a lot of informal classes at my local church congregation. I am comfortable in public speaking and I am constantly in situations where I teach people new things.
I will always make sure that the student understand what I am saying. I will explain everything thoroughly and I will make find ways to make the class and the information memorable.
