The South African National Anthem … in pictures

There’s a lot to be proud of as a rainbow nation. And as one that boasts 11 official languages. While English is kinda accepted as the official language, there are lots of people who would prefer to see at least 3 languages offered in schools - (me, for one!) - instead of just the regular fare of English and Afrikaans. How else will the sharp edges between the cultures begin to blur?

Saw this amazing, phonetic translation of the South African National Anthem (sung in FIVE of our languages) but again, it’s assuming that the reader is English. But definitely think it will help people get a better pronunciation of the languages they’re not fluent in.

What do you think?
