If you ever wanted to learn the quirks of South African English, now you can :D

All languages have dialects. And English is no exception. I live in South Africa, and as such, I speak South African English. It is not wildly divergent from other types of English but some of the differences can be a bit confusing for some visitors. For instance “just now” means “later” (sometimes “much later”), but in America it means “immediately”, or “a very short time ago”. These and other differences are discussed in this video.
