After learning some Afrikaans, it's extremely tempting to write "hy is 'n man en ek is 'n seun."

I thought it would be very easy learning Dutch being a native Afrikaans speaker but it's quite an adjustment.

I agree, but "boy" can't be an incorrect answer, imo...

How to pronoun 'man' in Dutch? In this sentence is it 'mon'?

No, it's is quite similar to man in "mandatory/ man", but the /ɑ/ is pronounced shorter. English "man" is more like /maaaaan/, while the Dutch "man" has a short a /mɑn/. I hope you get what I mean, I'm not the best in explaining such things.

It sounds close to how you'd pronounce "munn" in English, if that were a word.
