My Desire to Renew My Afrikaans Language and Heritage

I would like to take this opportunity to announce that I have chosen to collaborate with Operation X and this is my first post explaining my hopes and challenges which I re-blog here. In future I will write some of these posts in Afrikaans. Thank you to all my followers for reading and commenting. I hope you will find this ‘thread’ of my journey interesting in the months to come.

Take care.

  1. Dear Morag, Wishing you well with your challenge and opportunity. I have for a long time wanted to learn another language and when the latest lockdown occurred I signed up for an online course of French! I did a couple of years at school, over 50 years ago, so I thought I might have a ‘head start’. I’m enjoying it but it is a big challenge for me! I look forward to following you on Operation X if Google Translate works for Afrikaans. Good luck πŸŒΏπŸ˜˜πŸ™

  2. Wonderful, geluk en alles van die beste!
    I struggled just writing that one line ☺️but it’s the autocorrect and I suppose the lack of practicing and writing in Afrikaans. You are going to do so well and I am looking forward to supporting your collaboration blog
