South Africa – British Colonization

South Africa

More or less after the period of Dutch colonization, South Africa was colonized by the British Empire (during that time, there were a few years of Dutch occupation).
That period also influenced the language of South Africa, so these days, English is one of the official languages. The South African English sounds a bit like English from New Zealand, so it’s completely different from e.g., English from India.
