Dialoog/ Dialogue

A dialogue is a conversation that you write down. The way you write a dialogue in Afrikaans is exactly the same as you write it in English. You have a narrator (verteller) and characters. Below is an example of a dialogue. The knowledge of writing a dialogue is highly recommended for the Annual National Assessment.

Breaktime (Pouse)

Naledi: Hallo James, did you bring your ball to school today? Hallo James het jy jou bal skooltoe gebring vandag?

James: Hallo Naledi, yes I did. Do you want to play? Hallo Naledi, ja ek het. Wil jy graag speel?

Naledi: Yes please. Ja asseblief.

Jullia: Can I also play? Kan ek ook speel?

Naledi: No. We don’t want to be your friend! Nee. Ons wil nie jou vriende wees nie!

James: Naledi we cannot be rude. Let us play with her. Naledi ons kan nie lelik wees nie. Laat ons met haar speel.

Jullia: (Jullia is crying.) (Jullia huil)

Naledi: Don’t be sad. We are sorry for being rude. Please play with us. Moenie hartseer wees nie. Ons is jammer dat ons lelik was. Speel asseblief met ons.

Jullia: Thank you very much. Let’s go. Baie dankie. Kom ons gaan.
