Gesellig Afrikaans 2022 

Congratulations to students of the Gesellig Afrikaans Language Acquisition short learning programme who successfully completed the 2019 first semester course! Gesellig Afrikaans (GA) is presented every semester by the Department of Afrikaans and Dutch, German and French. Foreign language speakers can enrol for the beginner's course (GA1), while the advanced course (GA2) is ideal for third-language and foreign-language speakers with a basic knowledge of Afrikaans.
