Afrikaans is sometimes considered a creole language.
Before the langauge was called “Afrikaans”, it was also known as Cape Dutch and Kitchen Dutch (a derogatory term).
Although Afrikaans is spoken in South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, and Zimbabwe, the language itself belongs to the West Germanic group, due to its origin in Dutch.
Afrikaans is the third most spoken first language in South Africa but is widely used as a second langauge. In neighbouring Namibia, Afrikaans is a very popular lingua franca.
