Why is Afrikaans an important language to learn?

If you’re dreaming of traveling to South Africa or Namibia, learning to speak Afrikaans is a great way to ensure you get the most out of your trip. When you speak the local language it opens doors to more authentic experiences and potential friendships. Although South Africa and Namibia are the largest populations of Afrikaans speakers, your new linguistic skills may come in handy all around the world. There are smaller populations of Afrikaan speakers from Canada to the Netherlands, New Zealand to Zambia, and many countries in between. There are more than 7 million people who natively speak Afrikaans, and nearly double that who speak it as a second language. In fact, the number of first language Afrikaan speakers is on the rise in South Africa, seeing an increase of over 10% a the turn of the 21st century.
