Get the Lingo; South African Slang - Even with 11 official languages, South Africans still manage to communicate pretty well. Most of us speak English, but it’s a good idea to learn the local slang, which is sometimes a mix of several languages. South African slang has a unique flavour, borrowing freely from Afrikaans, a language similar to Dutch and Flemish.
