    Afrikaans is a hard language to learn outside of the country because it lacks the resources needed to learn independently or out of school in South africa but if have a good solid single textbook then that would suffice more than you would think.

    Just found your podcast a couple of weeks ago and since then I’ve been listening to all the 46 episodes 🙂 I finished the last one today. Keep up the good work!
