Learn Afrikaans online by practicing with a native speaker who is learning your language. Write or speak Afrikaans online to improve grammar or conversation.

A language exchange complements other forms of learning such as classroom, cultural immersion and multimedia, because you get to practice all that you have learned with native speakers in a safe and supportive environment.


...one of  "the best ways to learn a foreign language."

- The Wall Street Journal
November 18, 2002

Advantages of language exchange learning include:
  • Learning the real Afrikaans language (slang, expressions, etc.) used by ordinary native speakers
  • Getting accustomed to the way native speakers speak in real (casual) Afrikaans conversation
  • Making a friend in the Afrikaans-speaking culture.
