Swahili course 2008?

November 10, 2008 by · 1 Comment 

I’ m looking for a July course during which I want to learn Swahili. I’d like it to lead to a qualification of some sort, and either be one to one or with a group. Are there any courses anyone knows of at a college or a university: I cannot do the one year course at SOAS, and I already am following the Rosetta Stone course.

Thank you,

Katherine

Is there anyone who would like to learn Swahili, I'm eager to teach.?

October 20, 2008 by · 5 Comments 


There is a group on Yahoo called Swahili, which I have found has mostly beginners in the language. Some of them have asked me for help, but my own grammar is poor. I am certain that they would love for you to join that group and help teach them! For that matter, someone to correct my grammar would be nice.

Siku njema!

Is Swahili a particularly hard language to learn for an English-speaking person?

August 9, 2008 by · 4 Comments 

I know there are a lot of things that someone’s ability to learn a language depends on, but, as a whole, is Swahili fairly straightforward or overly complicated?

Cheers!

The sound system of Swahili is quite easy for an English-speaker to learn. The problem is that the grammar is very different. Where English and the other European languages use suffixes to do all the work, Swahili uses prefixes. It’s a very interesting system, but until you get used to it it will be difficult.

Learn Swahili - Swahili BBC

When Learning kiswahili you could use BBC Swahili: a great option would be to read the news in Swahili with a dictionary or translator at hand.

BBC Swahili can be found at: http://www.bbc.co.uk/swahili/.

How hard is swahili to learn?

August 6, 2008 by · 5 Comments 

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.

check the how hard is Swahili to learn post for an answer to this question
