ONS LEEF AFRIKAANS
This Afrikaans Language Program has been created for Afrikaans mother tongue homeschoolers.
"ONS LEEF AFRIKAANS is kreatief, maklik om te volg en alle antwoorde is beskikbaar vir die ouer. Dit gaan om veel meer as net taalwerk en skrif. Die taalwerkdeel van die program is daarop ingestel om die kind te help om die lewe om hom en in hom te interpreteer. Dit wil hom verder help om beter te kommunikeer, en betekenis te gee aan dit wat hy beleef. Jou kind leer om die taal wat hy reeds deur die hoor daarvan bemeester het, ook te kan lees en skryf.
My medeskrywer is my pa, Dr HF de Bruto, afgetrede professor in Afrikaans-Nederlands. (Dit is nou om diegene gerus te stel wat wonder of dit alles akademies korrek is.)
- 'n ouerhandleiding saam met elke les, reeds uitgewerk en uiteengesit vir elke dag. Al voorbereiding vir jou as ouer is om gom, kleurpotlode, ens. byderhand te hou.
- 'n kinderwerkboek propvol prentjies om in te kleur en uit te knip, handskrifoefeninge, stories, gedigte en vele meer kreatiewe projekte
- 25 leesboekies wat in die lesplanne gebruik word
- vokaal-, konsonant-, alfabet-, hoofletter- en kykwoordkaartjies
- 13 houtblokkies met die letterstekens van lang en kort vokale, en konsonante daarop (wat gebruik word in spelspeletjies)
- 'n video wat kortliks verduidelik hoe die program werk"

This is a website designed to teach Afrikaans to second language learners.
"The resources on the site are extensive. They include numerous sound files, carefully selected links, and discussion groups where Afrikaans speaking volunteers from around the world answer questions and provide comment. The teaching approach is thoroughly conventional and businesslike, and seems most appropriate for high school students. It does not use language laboratory techniques or playful learning.
As would be expected from a course originally intended mostly to prepare missionaries for field work, it is strongly slanted towards speaking the language, correct pronunciation and practical use, but it does contain some literature as well.
A particularly attractive feature of the site is that the facilities are free." (Leendert van Oostrum, Pestalozzi Trust for homeschool legal defence.)
The content developer, Dr. Jacques du Plessis, has over 20 years of experience teaching Afrikaans as a foreign language. His expertise in language teaching and technology offers you innovation with technology to facilitate your quest to learn the Afrikaans language.
