Afrikaans is a Dutch-based language spoken mainly in Namibia and South Africa. In South Africa, the language continues to be popular among the Free Staters and those residing in the Cape area. Unfortunately, Afrikaans has been arguably removed from many institutions it once harboured -including many universities (the University of Stellenbosch is practically the only Afrikaans-based university left in the country!). The future of the Afrikaans language is uncertain, as many South Africans are emigrating out of the country due to safety reasons.
