Listening is fun, especially if you surprise yourself with understanding more that you thought you could.

And should you understand nothing at all, maybe you are listening to a piece a little too advanced. If you understand some, listen again (several times) and you will be impressed to see how your ability expands each time. Relistening is really valuable, so remember to do so.

Enjoy exploring the unique aspects of spoken Afrikaans.
