Afrikaans is such a beautiful and incredibly easy language to learn. Besides its easy sentence structure and grammar (there are only 3 tenses), the spelling is also almost purely phonetic and there is no gender. Imagine the iconic Table Mountain overlooking Cape Town, the birthplace of Afrikaans. Afrikaans is the daughter language of Dutch and the term “Afrikaans” is actually Dutch for African. Nearly 90-95% of Afrikaans vocabulary is of Dutch origin! One of the easiest Germanic languages, it is spoken mainly in South Africa and Nambia.
