GRATITUDE POST: 2016 Facebook Memory

Toe ek Gr.8 by Hoerskool Groote Schuur begin het, was my begrip van 'Standaard Afrikaans' maar bitter min. Alhoewel ek 'Kombuis Afrikaans' baie goed kon verstaan, was praat n ander saak.Omdat mees van ons saalbyeenkomste, aankondigings ens in Afrikaans was, was dit rerig n kwessie van 'kom by of jy druip'.

Fast forward...

Tydens my Gr.9 jaar,het my Afrikaans onderwyseres Mev Roussouw, aan my voorgestel dat ek die volgende jaar Afrikaans Eerste Taal neem aangesien ek so hard gewerk het en my punte was dan redelik goed.Ek het baie getwyfel maar sy het my oortuig.

Vir die volgende drie jaar was ek geleer deur die ongelooflike Mev Diané la Grange wat saam my deur gedruk het met Mina Afrika,Kringe in n bos, al daai onverstaanbare kort verhale en poesie (lees reg nou mense). Sy het my ondersteun, aangemoedig om beter te doen en al my simpel vrae geantwoord.

Aan die einde van Matriek het ek die 'Tweetaligheids trofee' ontvang en vandag is ek as gekies as een van se ambassadeurs vir Afrikaans... OSSE Afrikaaps ♥️

Ek voel verskriklik geeerd en is ONBESKRYFLIK DANKBAAR aan jou Mev.La Grange...die is eintlik jou eer....
