How to say goodbye in all 11 official South African languages

Date: July 2nd, 2015

Goodbyes can be complicated. They can be heartfelt, full of sorrow. They can be casual among friends, or formal among work colleagues. We can say goodbye knowing we’ll never see someone again, or we can say goodbye knowing we’ll see them again tomorrow.

Goodbye’s the saddest word you’ll ever hear. It’s also the saddest word you’ll ever say. Saying goodbye sucks, and is absolutely, 100% terrifying.

I was happy with the results and liked it, but if I knew how to actually pronounce goodbye in Afrikaans like I originally wanted that’d be nice
But I’d give it a like or 17.(like i did. I gave it 17.) 👍
