[Vancouver, Canada] — Digital language learning app LingQ is proud to announce the addition of Afrikaans to its stable of languages. This is the second African language LingQ now offers.

LingQ Announces the Introduction of Afrikaans to Its Language Learning Platform

"We are excited to expand our language repertoire with the addition of Afrikaans," said Mark Kaufmann, co-founder of LingQ. "Our mission is to make language learning accessible and enjoyable for everyone. Afrikaans is a somewhat unique language with its roots in both European and African cultures and it’s fun to see it now on LingQ."

LingQ’s innovative methodology incorporates interactive lessons, personalized vocabulary tools, and a community of engaged native speaker tutors to create a comprehensive language learning experience. As with other languages on LingQ, the Afrikaans course will allow learners to gain proficiency through reading, listening, speaking, and writing.

Afrikaans, a language of Southern Africa, has a rich history and an interesting grammatical structure that makes it a unique language to learn. With LingQ learners can delve into Afrikaans' simplified grammar system and its robust vocabulary, which includes words borrowed from various languages such as Dutch, Malay, and indigenous African languages.

The inclusion of Afrikaans increases the total number of languages available on LingQ to 45, highlighting the platform's commitment to supporting the global language learning community.

"Adding Afrikaans to our platform will expose this wonderful language to more people and through the content they will be accessing, allow our users to learn more about South Africa present and past. We are thrilled to continue opening up more and more languages and hopefully helping people expand their knowledge of the world through language learning," Kaufmann added.

The Afrikaans language course is available starting today on LingQ's website and mobile app.
