How well do you speak “South African?” Take the Quiz!

February 4, 2012 , ,

One of the challenging (and sometimes comical) things about living in a foreign country is that South Africans use different names for things than in the U.S.  For example in South Africa, they refer to the letter “Z” as “Zed.”  Also, South African websites don’t end with “.com”  They end with “.co.za”

Instead of just telling you the differences, I created a quick 10 question quiz to test how well you speak “South African.” Click on the phrase “Take Our Quiz” below to start.  Best of Luck!

Disclaimer: “South African” isn’t really a language.  It’s just different English phrases and words than what we’re accustomed to in the U.S.  If you’re really curious about South Africa’s 11 official languages, go to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Languages_of_South_Africa
