Hoe meer hy dit hoor hoe meer gaan hy leer. :thumleft:

Om een of ander rede het engels gewen. Seker maar die maatjies en die tv wat die groter invloed gehad het. My kinders luister in elk geval al lank al nie meer na my nie... :patch:
My suster het besluit haar kuiken sal afrikaans praat en omdat my suster aan spraak diaree ly het sy dit baie gehoor en nou praat/skryf/lees die kind vlot afrikaans alhoewel sy in die buiteland woon. ;) :lol8:
Natuurlik moes sy ook pa se spaans leer en nou is sy vlot drietalig op 12 jarige ouderdom. :thumleft:

Het n gevoel ek sit in dieselfde bootjie eendag: Afrikaans VS Spaans VS Engels
Spaans in Noord Amerika is baie baie handig. Afrikaans, not so much.....

My skoonfamilie se huistaal is Spaans, so dit sal makliker wees om te leer......aan die ander kant, dit pas my eintlik baie goed dat ek nie betrokke kan raak by enige familie dramas nie  :deal:

Maybe he and Theant will be neighbours  ;). I am sure he will be fine. Ontario not so cold, but a lot more snow.

Spaans is glo n vrek moeilike taal want elke voorwerp het n hy of sy aanspreekvorm of so iets.
My suster se dogter het gesukkel met pa se taal en hy was nie happy nie. Toe gaan sit hulle haar in n skool in Guatamala vir n jaar. Geen engels om op terug te val. Dit het haar baie goed gedoen en sy verlang nounog terug en was al twee keer daar op vakansie na die dorpie in Guatamala.

Wie is Theant? Buks is nie n biker nie

That is me.... I think thabogrobler took my details to give to him.

This move is not for sissies! I can tell you that much. Hardest thing I have done in my life. But if you cut all ties back home and leave no back door like I did you can do it through pure determination. I can not go back, can not afford to. So going all out!

Oh, and just to add. Without the support of immigrant emotionally I would not have made it... !!!

+1

I'm in the same boat. Can't even think about going back, and after two years, I actually don't want to.

And just like you Ant, Immigrant was there when I started my first job and sent me the most awesome gift. I still use that gift almost daily. He's a good man  :thumleft:

Hang in there, things DO get better.  :biggrin:
Young enough to know I can, old enough to know I shouldn't, stupid enough to do it anyway.
