Breaking News: I’ll be learning to speak Afrikaans!


Our language assignments were announced last night to many cheers of excitement & gulps of nervousness. This morning, we all had to learn some basic greetings in all 6 languages that Group 43 is learning, which gave us a sense of the amazing diversity of this vast land. Detailed instruction (full immersion!) have started and our host families arrive in 30 minutes for first introductions. We move in with them tomorrow so stress levels are at a peak!

  1. Good luck with the language … remember, English is supposed to be a very difficult language to learn! You’ll do great and your host family will help. They’re lucky to have you!
