Today’s episode is all about the Afrikaans language, his history as a daughter language of Dutch, and I look into the question “How similar are Dutch and Afrikaans?”

Special thanks to Joop Wijnandts for his Dutch voice recording, and Ernest Mostert for his Afrikaans voice recording. And thanks to Nils Van Dessel for his last minute recording.
