Afrikaans is spoken in South Africa and Namibia by about 10 million people as a first or second language.

Several million speakers understand the language on a basic level. This unique language originated from Dutch settlers. It is influenced by Dutch, French, Malay and German, but since South Africa was invaded by England, it is mostly influenced by English. There are three main dialects in Afrikaans: Northern Cape, Western Cape and Eastern Cape.
