If you are struggling to read Afrikaans or want to learn the right way, this course is for you! This is the perfect place to start your Afrikaans journey.
If you can sound out a word, you can learn the word and build your language knowledge from there. Sadly, most schools don't teach reading Afrikaans with phonics and this is a fundamental reason why children become demotivated with the language. It's like building a house with no foundation.
I am so excited to, through this course, help children and adults build a good foundation to learn this beautiful descriptive language - Afrikaans.
Who this course is for:
Junior primary school learners or any beginner in reading Afrikaans.
This course is created for English as well as Afrikaans speaking learners or adults.
