Language lessons

I have received several requests for language lessons in African languages. Here’s some that I have found for Kiswahili, I’ll do more for other languages as I have time. I’ve added a list of books at the end of this post and you’ll find them all in the SocioLingo Africa bookstore (US) under the Linguistics Africa category.

The Kamusi Project maintains the following resources:

Mwana Simba is a comprehensive site with some language learning materials as well as songs, proverbs, puzzles etc

On-line Kiswahili course: KIKO – Kiswahili kwa Kompyuta (year 2)
