Why are the SA Exam Papers still available in English and Afrikaans ??

In Germany for instance they only have 1 language, but have 16 dialects:

  1. Bayerisch
  2. Nordddeutsches Platt
  3. Berlinerisch
  4. Schwäbisch
  5. Rheinländisch
  6. Hessisch
  7. Sächsisch
  8. Fränkisch
  9. Pfälzisch
  10. Badisch-Alemannisch
  11. Westfälisch
  12. Mecklenburgisch
  13. Ostpreußisch
  14. Thüringisch
  15. Saarländisch
  16. Schlesisch
  17. Pommerisch

For more info, please see German_dialects (Wikipedia)
These are only the large groups
;-)

In my home town they speak a sub dialect of the above and 5 km further, in the next town they speak a different dialect!
This differs about the same as the Afrikaans in Gauteng differs from Afrikaans spoken in the Cape !
