How to Speak Swahili Easily in 6 Steps

Knowing the dos and don’ts of learning a new language will help you avoid pitfalls that might hinder your progress. Here’s what you should do.

  1. Have clear goals. Understand why you’re learning Swahili. Is it for business, tourism or general interest? It’ll help you stay focused.
  2. Listening will help you know the pronunciation and use of different words.
  3. Avoid translating words to your native language because the context in which they’re used varies.
