No matter where in the world you are, you just have to hear one of these words, and you know there's another Saffa close by.

While traveling all around the world, Tyla recently had an interview on the Cruz Show in Los Angeles and was asked to clarify South African terms, phrases, and of course slang.

The hosts of the show asked her to explain a few including takkies but the one that caught her off-guard was voertsek!

Watch the interview moment here:

We can only hope this has educated a few international tourists coming to South Africa and looking to use the new words they learned.
