Learn Afrikaans Language


South Africa has eleven official languages - Afrikaans, English, Southern Ndebele, Northern Sotho, Sotho, Swati, Tsonga, Tswana, Venda, Xhosa and Zulu - all technically equal with other, although some are more widely spoken than others. Additionally there are eight other recognized but non-official languages (Fanagalo, Khoe, Lobedu, Nama, Northern Ndebele, Phuthi, San and South African Sign Language), and also significant populations in the country who speak other European (especially German, Greek and Portuguese), or South Asian (especially Gujarati, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu) languages.
