How to Learn Afrikaans in 4 Months

CAPE TIMES - 1924, April 26
It sounds impossible, but that is just what the new Pelman method of language instruction enables you to do – learn Afrikaans in four months.
You can proof it for yourself by reading the first page of the Course, reprinted on the right. If you can read this extract, then you can learn to speak, read and write Afrikaans.
The Pelman method is not only the most rapid ever devised, but it is the easiest and most pleasant. There are no translations, no vocabularies to memorise. The Pelman Guide to Pronunciation makes correct speaking easy.


So that you may form your own opinion, the Pelman Institute will send, entirely without charge, to any reader of The Cape Times a complete test lesson. Write for this today, and prove for yourself that learning Afrikaans can be pleasant, easy and profitable.
