Afrikaans Lessons in Nottingham. Learn Afrikaans
Our approach to Afrikaans lessons is very simple. First of all we let you decide how you want to receive the classes. Some people like to get them at home and others at work. Some clients prefer to learn during the day and others at the weekend. So you don't need to try and adapt your life to the lessons when they can be tailor made to suit your needs. The classes are then delivered by native speakers who will give you all the help and support you need.
Afrikaans Course in Nottingham
Whether you want Afrikaans lessons to help you in your general day-to-day life or for business needs, our made-to-order language courses can help you improve quickly and confidently.
General Afrikaans courses will let you engage in polite and interesting conversations with native Afrikaans speakers. They are ideal for preparing you for short visits to countries where Afrikaans is spoken. A Business course will focus on business protocol in Afrikaans, and later on reading and writing will become more important.
The flexible nature of our courses means that you can choose what you want to be taught. This means that you aren't restricted simply to Business or General courses but can go for something which will genuinely give you what you need. A client who wants their General lessons to focus on a particular area of interest just needs to advise the teacher during their first lesson or at any time during the course.
We arrange Business courses for many clients; primarily those working in international trade, overseas governments and universities, and employees of multinational firms who require a second language. You might automatically think that General courses in Afrikaans are just for those language students who need to get ready for an exam. However, in this increasingly multi-cultural society there are many people who make friends with Afrikaans speakers or who have a partner who speaks the language.

Info about Afrikaans
Originating from 17th century Dutch, Afrikaans is mainly spoken in South Africa and Namibia, though there are communities found throughout Africa. The language was considered a dialect of Dutch until the late 1800s, when it was pronounced an official language in its own right; though even today Dutch and Afrikaans are pretty much mutually intelligible. The language has spread and influenced other cultures: London has its own newspaper in Afrikaans - Die Stem; South African English has many loan words from Afrikaans; and there is a growing scene for musicians singing in the language.
Afrikaans is a rich and appealing language with a fascinating history and complicated social history, though its future as an official language of South Africa could well be under dispute.
