Let's meet Lindie Botes from South Africa
Could you tell us about yourself, including the languages you know?
I was born in Pretoria, South Africa. Because of my father’s job, I grew up in Paris, Pakistan, Dubai and South Africa. Currently my parents live in Japan. At home I speak Afrikaans. At English schools in various countries I learnt Urdu, Arabic and French as subjects. In 2009 I became interested in Korean and this spread to Japanese, Mandarin, and other Asian languages.
