    Some of the members requested we have a poll to see how many english and afrikaans speaking members we have, so here goes. Please tick your home language :)

    I can also do both, but this poll is for your "home language", what you were raised in :), I edited my post to say that.

    Cool but that's a bit of a tough one growing up in Mitchell's Plain(Cape town), where you speak English in the house and Afrikaans or mixed outside.:lol::lol:

    English it is.

    I find myself is a similar situation...my "home language" was Afrikaans and I was "raised" in the house as Afrikaans...Mom,Dad,Grandparents..etc...but my entire "school education" was English..Friends..etc...my home language now is English as I consider myself English and Hubby is also English... but when we go visit my Parents I speak Afrikaans to them...guess I'll "tick" myself as English as the only time I did actually speak Afrikaans was when I came home from school and friends..

    I don't think a poll has that many options to list ALL languages...I mean apart from the overseas languages there are Xhosa, Zulu, Sotho, tswana, etc - cause if I don't add that someone will say I'm a racist :whistling:
