Verskoon my, the Afrikaans audio for a few of the last words is missing. Sorry to bother you, but it is a little tough to figure out the pronunciation without it, lol. 😉


I do like these vocab lists, however, my suggestions for improvement on them would be to include sentences with all and not just a few words. If there was a way to include all the sentences (including additional examples) for each word in the slideshow that would be great too. For me, I seem to learn well when the words are in the context of an entire sentence. Meaning and cadence helps with comprehension and different uses or ways to pronounce. So yes, if you're incline, more sentences please, but definitely at least the one Afrikaans pronunciation for each word would be great! I know it prob. takes a while for you guys to put these things together, I'm just jabbin' ya! But I love these lists, and the continuous loop so I can just put it on and do things while practicing without having to restart an audio. Thank you! 😁
