Lien character list

We know how you hate Lien. Really, we do. We also know that many exam questions are centered around obscure characters.

This is why we present to you a list of characters in Derick van der Walt’s Lien se lankstaanskoene.


It isn’t 100% complete or detailed but, used in conjunction with our chapter summaries and the novel itself should allow you to learn about characters you may never have heard of before. Find it here.


Good luck!

Update on History notes and Lien

Expanding upon our History section, we now cover some parts of South African history. Currently, we have notes on the Collapse of Apartheid (South Africa in the 1980s) and the Transition from Apartheid to Democracy (1990-1994) available for your perusal. Head on over to the History page to find them.

Also in the pipeline are notes on “Lien se lankstaanskoene” by Derick van der Walt, the Matric Afrikaans setwork book for many schools. We will keep you updated on their progress and hopefully you’ll be seeing them soon.
