This handy book is a beginner?s complete course in the Swahili language, designed especially for foreigners. The book is a result of the author?s many years of teaching experience. It is divided into two parts: part one covers pronunciation; Swahili greetings and manners; classification of nouns; adjectives, verbs, adverbs, etc. in twenty-eight lessons and thirty-six exercises. part two includes a study of Swahili usage in specific situations (e.g. at home, in the market, on the road, at the airport, etc.); eleven further lessons and thirteen exercises; the key to the exercises in Parts One and Two; and a Swahili-English vocabulary of words used in the book.

Book News
Safari, who has taught Swahili to beginners for over 40 years, notes in the introduction that Swahili is a surprisingly easy language to learn. This book proceeds from that premise, offering 28 lessons of increasingly complexity in the first part, followed by 13 stories about everyday life in East Africa with accompanying comprehension quizzes. A Swahili-English vocabulary closes out the book, containing all the words used in exercises throughout. Distributed in North America by the African Books Collective.
