    Of course! Not only is English understood in South Africa, it is widely-spoken. It is one of the country's official languages.

    Yes it is


    Yes! But a South African passport doesn't get you far, so it's not common to see South Afrikaners travelling widely. But they are really nice and friendly people!

    What about French? I thought they speak French most of the time?
