Johan Ferreira

From: South Africa

Language: Afrikaans

Class:2014 / Alum

Newly transplanted to DC this past Fall, John Ferreira immediately contacted GLN about teaching his native language, Afrikaans. Coming from a country that has 11 official languages, Johan thinks you can best understand someone’s perspective by speaking their language. For Johan, teaching his mother tongue also means investigating its key role in the formation of South Africa.
