How can I learn to speak swahili online?

November 16, 2007 by · 7 Comments 

Is there any website, like babelfish, that can translate english to swahili? I realy need to learn it. I want to work in Africa when I get older and I think its best to start learning some now. Any ideas?

The babelfish website & another college website that used to be able to translate Swahili had to close due to lack of funding. Some of the Rosetta Stone or Berlitz courses may be accessible online.

Swahili is actually relatively easy to pick up as a language. Unlike English, each letter is pronounced the same way every time it’s used, so you don’t have to worry about dipthongs or changing sounds. Also, double vowels (like “oo”) are just long o sounds, like the English “boat” not “pool”.

Good luck with the swahili. Utaweza kufahamu Swahili. Hongera sana.
