Dutch and Afrikaans

Hello everyone! I was very curious if any of you decided to learn either of these languages if you already spoke the other. If so, has knowing either really helped you better understand the other? I ask this, because I've been learning Dutch much longer than Afrikaans, and I've surpassed Dutch by quite a lot. Afrikaans is definitely more simplified that Dutch is, but even the pronounciation, in my opinion, is more difficult that of Dutch. Does anyone have any favourite tools or other resources they use to learn Dutch?
