What's the point of speaking Afrikaans in the presence of NETs who can't understand it? That's exclusionary. Do they feel more comfortable and better able to articulate their thoughts in their mother tongue of Afrikaans than their non native language of English? Then they're not really NETs are they?

I thought if your mother tongue was Afrikaans, you weren't suppose to be working here.  I thought only if your mother tongue was English could you work here.  Immigration rule?  Folks speaking another language occasionally doesn't bother me, but it does bother other people as it can be viewed by some as being exclusionary.  So, if you speak multiple languages, you should try and speak the common language amongst everyone and not switch to another language only some can speak.

I am not sure if it is enforced then?

"""Must have studied from at least the junior high level (7th Grade) and graduated from a university in one of the seven designated countries listed above. Applicants from areas such as South African, Quebec, etc. where significant portions of the population might not speak English as their primary language must provide proof that their schooling from 7th year/grade and through university was conducted in English. Letters from the schools will be sufficient proof and must be submitted with the applicant's initial application."""

I had to show "proof" that my schooling was primarily in English from highschool and up.
Although, I gotta say, a vaguely English sounding school name qualifies as sufficient evidence that schooling was in English, so...

Also, I feel that during the interview, they were low-key assessing my English language abilities.

Ahhhhh, I always wondered why I've never been checked for that. I suppose if you are FROM Quebec that makes more sense, though I know some guys from Hearst and they speak ZERO English. haha Patrice from 'Earst.
The first thing to say is that this is definitely not pyramid selling, OK?

Are the Africans schools name Africans and the English names are in English?  I guess many Koreans are good enough at English nowadays to detect.  I had wondered of that.  Of course welcome to the English speakers but keep out the non English speakers for giving us a bad name and for flooding the market too much.  Is this just an EPIK interview also or just an immigration check?

Not always.
And sometimes the names are pretty generic so it's kind of difficult to tell what language it's in.
Also, if your school's name is, for example "Vuurvogel vrijeschool",  most people would already just translate the name when talking to other people ("Firebird Elementary school" in this particular example), so writing the English name on one's school list on a resume doesn't feel particularly odd or dishonest.
Code switching can be a really weird thing, sometimes.

But if you give some official letter or letterhead of the school, wouldn't the name be in the original language - Africans?

In many places where English is one of the primary languages, you can request the docs in English. You can do this even in some non-English countries -- although it might cost a bit extra.
As for the letterhead, I don't think too many people glance at them. Anyway, half the time they're in Latin lol.

Yeah, it's all the fault of those Quebecois and Afrikaaners that we get a bad name. Nothing we do at all.

The name of the school on the official letterhead would still be an Africans name, No?

It might be, yes. Doesn't *neccesarily* mean lessons are in Afrikaans, though. And vice versa, of course.

I've been saying that for years.  Get rid of those unintelligible Afrikaaners and put da boot to dose Joe Louis eating Pepsis.

"Bainting" is clearly meme-talk for "ain't baiting".  :azn:

Of course, I just wondered how Korean immigration or the EPIK program viewed it?
