Word of the Week

Thought I would work on my Afrikaans today, since I got some English/Afrikaans dictionaries and workbooks to help me for Christmas.  Here's a word essential to living here in SA.

koop  (k - oo (this is a twin vowel, sounds like /poor/ rather than in english like /boot/) - p), to buy or purchase. 
usually you will see this verb paired with /het ge/ before it. 
As in:    Waar het jy die motor gekoop?
             Where did you purchase the car?

What do you think?
