Fluent in English and Afrikaans. Us Afrikaans Natalians had no choice but to learn the English language deliciously.

I can greet in Zulu and Xhosa. I'm such an overachiever.

Fluent in German and English. Little bit of French (4 years in school). Afrikaans is rusty.

Edit. Can swear fluently in Italian

Afrikaans barely understand a few things,
