Our greeting in this podcast is:


Pronounce it: /xuːjə dɑx/
It literally means ‘Good day’ in Afrikaans.
The correct response is a repetition of the greeting;



Afrikaans is a West Germanic language spoken in South Africa, Namibia and, to a lesser extent, Botswana and Zimbabwe. It evolved from the Dutch vernacular of South Holland spoken by the mainly Dutch settlers of what is now South Africa, where it gradually began to develop distinguishing characteristics in the course of the 18th century.

As a daughter/ creole or partially creole language of Dutch, it can be referred to as “Cape Dutch” or “kitchen Dutch”  The term is ultimately derived from Dutch Afrikaans-Hollands meaning “African Dutch”. Speakers find it similar to Flemish.
