After numerous requests we are proud to present our second Language Afrikaans production for English schools. There is a strong need for English speaking learners to become competent in Afrikaans from an early age. The aim of this production is to expose children to the Afrikaans language by bringing books and vocabulary to life in a fun visual way. By employing tools such as repetition, participation and humour the learners will leave with a fundamental understanding of the language and stories. They will be introduced to new vocabulary and ultimately be charmed by the beauty of the Afrikaans language. It is our goal, that as we leave the books at a cliff-hanger moment, the children will be chomping at the bit to finish reading the books for themselves.

This production will consist of one Junior Primary show (Gr 1-Gr 3) and one Senior Primary show (Gr 4-Gr 7) Three story books and a poetry book will be dramatised. The show will run at approximately at 45 minutes. The titles have been carefully chosen at a reading level appropriate for second language learners but this doesn’t mean they won’t be stretched; confident Afrikaans readers will certainly not be left bored
