What language do White South Africans speak

Why are they white?

-The majority of South Africans are black. There are whites, Indians, East Asians, and others there because they or their family migrated there. Whites first settled in large numbers in the country during the Scramble for Africa (European colonization of Africa) in the 1800s.

What language do South Africans speak?

-Like most Africans, South Africans speak more than one language. South Africa has 11 official languages: Afrikaans, English, Ndebele, Northern Sotho, Sotho, Swazi, Tswana, Tsonga, Venda, Xhosa and Zulu. Afrikaans is not a native African language, it was a language originated by the Dutch colonist settlers and is actually a European language (despite the fact it was first spoken in Africa). Because of the dominance whites had when they settled in South Africa, it is also spoken by black South Africans.

What language are they introduced to first?

-You mean what was the first language ever spoken in South Africa? I don't believe anyone knows for certain. No one even knows what the first language in the world is for sure. But Africans always had their own language, they did not need a language "introduced" to them.

Why do they have British accents?

-I don't believe black South Africans have British accents. It's the white South Africans who do because they are usually either descended from Dutch settlers or British settlers.
