I'm South African but a British citizen, married to an English woman. Should I continue to teach my daughter Afrikaans?
I feel that in the current climate of Brexit and negative attitude towards immigrants and foreigners in this country and reports of people being told to speak English in public that I'm scared of speaking a foreign language to my daughter, and that she would be victimised for speaking a foreign language.

Yes, definitely. Having more than one native language is HEALTHY, and you don't want to cut her off from half of her relatives

Speak Afrikans at home and with family but speak English everywhere else. That is how my parents taught me to deal with being bilingual. I try my best to not offend other people. I know some people get offended when they can't understand what you are saying.
