Some South African English for you

“Don’t be a doos. Naartjies are much better than spanspek. You can get the best ones at the shop near the petrol station. Just go down the street, and turn right at the robot. When you get there, you have to ignore the bergies, they just want to suip. I would’ve gone, but I have to make lunch, so I will go just now”

In Standard English

“Don’t be an idiot. Tangerines are much better than cantaloupe. You can get the best ones at the shop near the petrol station. Just go down the street, and turn right at the traffic light. When you get there, you have to ignore the beggars, they just want to drink. I would’ve gone, but I have to make lunch, so I will go later”
