Our Afrikaans courses help you learn Afrikaans easily.
We’re one of the few language teaching institutions in the country that offers a range of engaging and interactive Afrikaans language learning courses.
Afrikaans is a fascinating, ever-evolving West Germanic language that originated at the most southern tip of Africa. Its vocabulary contains words and phrases from languages as diverse as Khoekhoe, Malay and Arabic, and it has seven to ten million speakers in South Africa. Now you can speak it too.
We blend interactive, practical and creative learning, including face-to-face teaching and online Afrikaans learning and support. You’ll have a great linguistic experience and learn more about the different groups within the diverse Afrikaans culture and community. We also make the most of the beautiful part of the world we’re in and arrange great excursions.
Who can join?
Are you a local or international student or a working individual who’d like to learn to speak Afrikaans with friends, classmates or colleagues? Does your organisation need to communicate with Afrikaans clients?
If you’re not connected to the University, but want to learn this beautiful language, check out Afrikaans 123 or Beginner Afrikaans Level1. Afrikaans 123 also works well for organisations.
If you’re an international or exchange student, have a look at the Beginner Afrikaans Level 1. If you’re from the Netherlands or Belgium, there’s Afrikaans Language and Culture course for Dutch-speaking students.
If you’re a registered local SU student, the Beginner Afrikaans Level 1 course or Survival Afrikaans will do the trick. And if you’re an SU staff member, we’d recommend Beginner Afrikaans level 1.

“Ek dink dis ‘n jammerte dat ons so vroeg moes vertrek waardeur ek my Afrikaanse taalavontuur nie heeltemal kon volbring nie. Deur jou aanlyn lesse en die interessante en blikverruimende assesserings het ek op ‘n afstand egter altyd gevoel asof ek my avontuur voort kon sit. So dankie vir jou moeite om ook aanlyn die kursus baie interessant te maak.”
[What a pity I could not complete my Afrikaans language adventure in person. But through your online lectures and interesting and expansive assessments I felt that I was able to continue my adventure even from a distance. Thank you so much for making the course so interesting, even when it was presented online.]
“I never even knew that such a kind of personal freedom existed, because I had never experienced it before.” In celebration of Freedom Day on 27 April, a Belgian exchange students shares her thoughts on freedom with us, originally in Afrikaans, but translated into English below.
