I hope you enjoy this short video 🙂

I want to share my own experiences, and the experiences of others who learn in a fun way, both here, on my YouTube Channel, and in the 1 to 1 coaching sessions I offer, in the hope that it will be useful to others.

I want to help people to become independent learners by teaching them how to learn languages in the right way for them.

I am passionate about encouraging more people to learn languages because I believe it can help us all to get a better understanding of each other, and through gaining a better understanding of each other perhaps we might begin to live together more peacefully.

FAQs about me

How old are you? – 37 (updated 06.01.2017)

Where do you live? – Near Cambridge, UK

If you could live anywhere where would you love to live? – It keeps changing! maybe Camps Bay, Cape Town, Llandudno, Cape Town or Big Bay Cape Town, I cant decide!  I also think some places in America look beautiful but I`ve never been to America so I don`t know.

Do you have any pets? – Unfortunately not because we live in an apartment, but I would love dogs.

What other languages are you learning? – French, and I would also like to start Spanish and Welsh when my Afrikaans and French are better.

Why Afrikaans? – My husband is South African and so we visit his family there yearly, also I wanted a language that I could use regularly, but really I just love it!!

Why French? – I lived and worked in France at Disneyland Paris, and so I want to keep that part of me alive.

Why Welsh? – My Granddad was Welsh, sadly he is no longer around but I still want to do it for him. Plus I also love the less common languages, hence Afrikaans.

Why Spanish? I love Spanish music and just feel a draw to the language.

Hello and Welcome! or Hallo en Welkom!


Hello and Welcome! Hallo en Welkom!

I first fell in love with South Africa in 2011 when my now husband, a South African, took me to visit his home country.  South Africa and Afrikaans have both completely captured my heart, and so I have started this blog to create a place where I will post things about both Afrikaans and South Africa that I find interesting, and that will hopefully be of interest and help to others, and where learners and tutors of Afrikaans can come together and share ideas.  It is also a way of keeping myself accountable on my Afrikaans language learning journey.

Here is my introduction video, I hope you enjoy my blog,

Kelly parker 🙂
