I love the books of Deon Meyer and I know, that he writes in Afrikaans. We have a great translation into German - the translater leaves some of the wordes as for example "Meneer", Menvrou"
"Juffrou" in Afrikaans.
Now my question: when I go another country, I like to learn some polite word in the language of the country I am visiting. Would it be polite to use the above words and if so in which situation would I use them? Would they be used as "Sir" "Madam" or "Miss"?
Looking forward to hear from you,
