Bok van Blerk's "De La Rey," "Tannie Tina Van Wyk," & "1968 Bakkie Plat" Music Videos






In a language topping this list of "the 10 easiest to learn from scratch" for an Anglophone — Easiest Foreign Languages. The language also has the advantage of being, or at least having been, politically incorrect, and also of being a version of my ancestral Dutch, as well as that of fellow New Yorker Martin Van Buren, "the only president not to have spoken English as his first language."

Well you learn something new everyday. I didn't know that about Afrikaans. I have only heard one of the songs on your playlist before, it was De La Rey, although it had English subtitles. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_VmFgG91qb4
