Jacques du Plessis has taught Afrikaans for 30+ years, including teaching in-class, online, and one-on-one instruction (in person and online). If you are interested in taking a class, please reach out afrikaans2u [at] gmail [dot] com.

AFRIKAANS.US serves as the online textbook and reference. It has been very effective to progress students from 0 to level 3 in less than a year.


If you want credit for your Afrikaans at either High School or College level, I can help.  I am a certified ACTFL Afrikaans Oral Proficiency Tester.

I test students for the first 4 semesters of Afrikaans at the college level.

I have developed a High School curriculum and I test for Afrikaans written, spoken, listening, and reading proficiency at the high school levels.
