Seeking Afrikaans teacher

Hi there,

I've been thinking about learning the language for some time now. Held off from doing anything about it for a while because I thought it might be a passing interest. It wasn't, obviously, so if you or anyone you know praat die taal and are interested in teaching it do contact me.


Hi Guido

Herman and I are planning to emigrate to Argentina, so we are still in South Africa at the moment. Although I am not a qualified teacher, I have an affinity with languages, having grown up speaking both Afrikaans and English in the house and at school. So, if you feel like it, we can maybe recommend some reading material, vocabulary and practice via the web, even if it is just to start somewhere. A good thing would also be to listen so Afrikaans on the radio(internet) and watch Afrikaans movies and, best of all listen to the music.

Goeie dag Guido,

Like Lorraine, I am willing to help you on-line, but you might have difficulty with the correct pronunciation if you cannot also hear the language. My son and I are planning to re-patriate - not yet certain where - and South America are being considered. However, this will only happen 2017 as we still have obligations keeping us here till then.

Let me know if you are interested.

Hi there Guido
I just joined the forum
Argentina such a beautiful place and I always longed to go there.
My father was Austrian but we my family born here in South Africa
M children are grown up and married
I am still fit but to get a job here nearly impossible
Is there assistance from there or someone to lead us how to emigrate to Argentina?

Hello Theodore,

Welcome on board.

You will probably get some feedback more easily if you create a new thread on the Argentina forum. This one is rather old and Guido hasn't connected since years now.

Furthermore, feel free to read the articles in the Living in Argentina guide to know how you can go about with moving to Argentina and reach out for the Embassy :

All the best,
