Building blocks of Afrikaans pronunciation

Afrikaans is a phonic language. You spell it as you say it. If you know the sounds (klanke) it will be easier for you.

Remember:

  • If it is one thing it is written as one word.
  • If the word starts with a ‘w’ you pronounce it like an English ‘v’
  • The ‘d’ and ‘t’ at the end of a word sounds the same.
