More About The Course

Swahili, referred to as Kiswahili when speaking the language, is a major African language. It is the national and official language of Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda, and one of the four national languages of the Democratic Republic of Congo. Other countries where Swahili is spoken include Rwanda, Burundi, Mozambique, Zambia, Malawi, and Somalia. Swahili is an official language of the United Nations.

This is the first of six language courses offered in the academic year 2016-2017, designed for beginners who want a fast and productive exposure to the language. By the end of the year students will be comfortable talking about everyday activities, understanding mundane conversations, and becoming familiar with diverse cultures of East Africa.
