I am a trained teacher - my subject is Maths.
I think Afrikaans is an easy language to learn - it only has three tenses ( past, present and future) and there is no difference in verbs for singular or multiple people/things, etc.
There are also a lot of words that are very similar in Afrikaans and English - that will also make learning the vocabulary easy.
I have been in Australia for nearly 14 years and we still speak fluent Afrikaans at home, I still feel it is my first language.
I would love to teach you a language that I love!
