Lol, its easy. My friend kinda sucked hard at it. I was away and he was picked to do manderin sections as host for chinese new year, he screwed up royally, he started mixing manderin with bits of cantonese and english. But it was fine in the end cus most of the ppl just laughed at him.

I agree, you'd probably be better off learning Dutch. As to the question, uh, great friends greet each other the same way casual acquaintences do - with 'more' or 'middag' or something like that.

over a couple of years. Afrikaans would be a whole different other language
then the Dutch we once know.

that's why they have put us in a Dutch language league

I also know that "C" isn't use in afrikans and it is replace by "K", did i make a mistake somewhere. I only know the basics like dankie, more and etc(don't even know if i spell it correctly)...

en rustig does not means tired
it means relaxed

Yeah, moeg is tired. I assumed context with your line - rather than asking me to relax, I assumed you we're saying that I was snoozing at the wheel.

Uh, sure. The language isn't much use outside of South Africa though. It is a lot closer to Flemmish than Dutch. I can understand Dutch when it is written, but the accent usually gets me. I've watched TV in Flemmish and I can follow it.
What do you want to know?

The line that I posted about - Ek is nie rustig nie, net 'n klein bietjie stadig vanaand - would be pronounced 'Ak us nee ruhstugh nee, net ah clain beekee stahdugh finaahnd. Direct translation would be "I am not tired not, just a little bit slow tonight". The language uses double negatives. The 'g' sound in rustig and stadig is a hard gutteral g. It should sound like you're trying to clear your throat. You should also roll your 'r' sounds.
