Afrikaans, as a first additional language is taught by Mr JC Yselle at Fairways Primary School to all learners from Grade R - 3. Starting in the early grades of a child's school career, the foundations must be laid for the learners to grasp their first additional language.
Afrikaans is taught in a fun and interesting way. The learners therefore keep a positive attitude towards the language.
The Grade R children learn songs and rhymes, informal learning thereby taking place.
Grades 1-3 will find formal learning takes place in a fun way. The students enjoy the many interactive learning styles, and they are very eager to learn Afrikaans.
In 2014 the following book will be used in the Afrikaans class : Afrikaans Sonder Grense Graad 1, 2 and 3.
