My mother was Afrikaans, my father was English (born in Leichestershire) and I married a Jew (learnt Hebrew & some Yiddish)! Studied German, Latin (helps to understand Italian) & Dutch at varsity. Understand some Sesotho. :lol:

I am English speaking and my SO is Afrikaans speaking. I can speak Afrikaans, but give me a few beers and watch me struggle with the accent. :redface: I think I am speaking perfect Afrikaans but when my SO starts smiling at me, then I know the rooi neck is coming through. :P

DB, I know the border accent well. I can tell who comes from the EC when they start speaking. :lol: eg. East London sounds like "Slunin". :?:

Don't feel bad about it, have the same problem :roll:
My SO is English speaking and I am Afrikaans speaking.
So when he teases me about my "English" I then tell him in a sweet voice (GP's saying) gaan vang 'n haan in London :D

Hi all,
I am German, so: I speak German. Was raised up in Canada, so I speak English. Love French language a lot - but forgot a little bit during past years :redface:

Yep, that's it - Christel

I'm Afrikaans, but don't speak it properly as I spend my days speaking English at work and all the textbooks I used for my studies were English. From a business point of view therefore, I can't express myself in my home language. It is only when I am on leave and when I spend more time with my family that I start feeling comfortable with Afrikaans again.

English speaking. When I am with my Dad, we speak in Lancashire slang, but in the parks I get a rare opportunity to speak Afrikaans, but those who know me walk away, and I haven't worked out why yet.
