(So, wie is die plaasjapie?)
The Author's Background: Jacques is a native Afrikaans speaker. He studied at the University of South Africa and at the University of Pretoria, before coming to the USA, where he started the Afrikaans program at BYU in 1985. He developed two Afrikaans textbooks, which were the basis for this Web-based open courseware. The paper-based version of course has been used at several universities in the USA to teach hundreds of students. The goal is that this Web-based version will teach hundreds, if not thousands more. Currently Jacques teaches at the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee (UWM)
