Afrikaans is a West Germanic language spoken in South Africa, Namibia and, to a lesser extent, Botswana and Zimbabwe. Although Afrikaans has adopted words from other languages, including German and the Khoisan languages, an estimated 90 to 95% of the vocabulary of Afrikaans is of Dutch origin. There is a large degree of mutual intelligibility between the two languages especially in written form. In general, mutual intelligibility between Dutch and Afrikaans is better than between Dutch and Frisian or between Danish and Swedish. With about 7 million native speakers in South Africa or 13.5% of the population, it is the third-most-spoken language in the country. In addition, many native speakers of Bantu languages and English also speak Afrikaans as a second language. It is taught in schools, with about 10.3 million second-language students. One reason for the expansion of Afrikaans is its development in the public realm: it is used in newspapers, radio programs, TV, and several translations of the Bible have been published since the first one was completed in 1933. Both Afrikaans and German are recognized regional languages in Namibia, although only English has an official status within the government.
Estimates of the total number of Afrikaans speakers range between 15 and 23 million. South Africa is ranked sixth out of the world's seventeen megadiverse countries.
