A challenge for the reader

I'd like to challenge the reader to see if he/she can understand some afrikaans. Here are a few sentences, try to translate them to Norwegian or English. The winner will get a rock or something similar. ;-)

(1) "Kan jy asseblief stadiger praat?"

(2) "Waar kan ek die badkamer vind?"

(3) "Waar kan ek handboeke koop?"

(4) "Hoeveel kos dit?"

(5) "Ek weet nie!"

(6) "Watter taale praat jy?"

(7) "Ek wil 'n kar vir die naweek huur. Hoeveel kos dit?"

(8) "Waar is die naaste vulstasie?"

(9) "Draai die eerste straat regs, dan links net anderkant die kerk"

(10) "Waar kom jy daarvan? -Ek kom van Norwe√ę!"

Good luck!

Ok, I will try withouth any means of help what so ever:

1) So you can still talk?

2) Where can I use the bathroom?

3) Where can I buy towels?

4) How much does it cost?

5) I don't know!

6) What are you talking about?

7) I want to rent a car for a week. How much does it cost?

8) Where is the next bus stop?

9) Try to the right at the next street, then left when you reach the second block.

10) Where do you come from? I come from Norway!
