Afrikaans Flashcards

This week I created some electronic flashcards with sound to learn Afrikaans. I'm going on a mission trip to Namibia, Africa and we were given some simple sentences in Afrikaans. Since Memorize-It was created specifically to learn languages, I thought it would be best for me to create the cards and give them to the team.

You will first have to download and install Memorize-It.

Then you can go to this link to get the flashcards.
You just save the file to disk, then click open once the download is complete. Once you have the file open, just click the quiz button to begin quizzing the cards. The pronunciation on these (done by me) is questionable since I do not speak Afrikaans. Most seemed close to German, but more Dutch and I have a good handle on German. I think most of them are close, but I'm sure there are errors. As with all languages, close will get you a very long way into people's hearts.
