Kortverhale ⁘ Short Stories

Short stories are wonderful pieces of information about the culture, the people, nature, and food, social activities, etc. Most foreigners learning Afrikaans have the courage to tackle a short story.

A big secret from my years of observation: Reading is what polishes your language ability. I have observed Americans in South Africa learn Afrikaans. I met only two who stood head and shoulders above the other learners. I had to probe to find out what their secret sauce was. ...and I found it. Both read in Afrikaans frequently.
