This sentence came out of Daniel’s mouth tonight.
And I promptly corrected him: ‘Ek drink net gou my juice klaar’ At which Etienne corrected me of course: juice – sap. And I rolled my eyes. As you do.
We send the children to an English school and they speak Afrikaans exclusively at home as it is our home language. In principal it’s a fantastic idea and it certainly worked for me as people often comment that I don’t speak with an Afrikaans accent and I went to an English pre-primary school.
My question is this:
How much should we correct him? Should we just muddle along and quietly correct him (which we try not to do too often)?
Any parents in the same position that have some suggestions?
