How hard is swahili to learn?

August 6, 2008 by  

I’m thinking about learning swahili? How hard is it to learn when english is my first language? Any other good language ideas for me? I want to be a linguist and a translator. I was thinking maybe Farsi…thanks!
It’s pretty hard to learn if you come from a purely English language backround. It is much easier to read than to speak. However, you should try learning French or perhaps some Latin.

    I'm told it's very simple as it has no past or present tense. Good luck!
