Having been homeschooling since 1997 – that’s over 20 years – we have tried and tested a variety of homeschooling curricula and resources and found some that work fantastically well for us and others that worked, but were not quite to our liking for some or other reason.
When it came to materials for learning Afrikaans as a second language, there were no products at all
designed specifically for the homeschool scenario, so by trial and error we have gone through a range of about 10 different Afrikaans workbooks and text books.
Unfortunately, many of these were so geared to the typical South African classroom scenario, requiring group work or other forms of classroom interaction, that they were a total flop in our homeschool and are now collecting dust!
Thankfully, we HAVE found a variety of Afrikaans products that have worked very well for us and also for other homeschooling families that have used them, and to make sourcing them easy, we decided to start this business, South African Homeschool Suppliers.
Over the years, since we started in 2013, we have also added other products that we liked and that worked for homeschoolers.
We have also listed products for other subjects that we recommend in the bottom of the left-hand column of this page: products for Phonics, Art Appreciation, Art, Geography, Social Studies, Latin …and more.
