The Swahili Language
Swahili, or Kiswahili, the most widely-spoken African language, is a Bantu language spoken by approximately 5 million native-speakers living mainly along the East African coast from Somalia to the North Africa coastline of Madagascar. Up to an additional 150 million people speak Swahili as a second language. It is recognized as an official national language in Uganda, Kenya, and Tanzania. Pimsleur's Swahili teaches Standard Swahili as spoken in and around Nairobi, Kenya.
Written Swahili uses 24 letters from the Roman alphabet, excepting C, Q, and X, and including an additional letter “CH."

    Comments about Swahili Phase 1, Unit 01-05:

    I've been learning languages for years and this is the most effective. I live with a native Swahili speaker and this method has really been effective !

    I use the app as instructed. I'm a bit of a perfectionist so I may do the same lesson more than one day to make sure I'm comfortable. I've been able to confidently incorporate what I've learned into conversations at home.

    I'm really impressed

    Draw back: it's very proper Swahili ... Nothing is wrong with that but my native speaking boyfriend tells me I speak perfectly and there are some less formal shortcuts

      Comments about Swahili Phase 1, Unit 01-05:

      I have heard only good things about the Pimsleur program and am very pleased. However I do not think I will order the remainder units of phase 1 of Swahalli because I just found out that Pimsleur does not offer level 11 so I can not master the language to the level I want, o become fluent therefore I will have to use another company. If there is a plan to develop a level 11 in a Swahalli please let me know.

          Comments about Swahili Phase 1, Unit 01-05:

          I have only used levels 1-5 so far but I am planning on purchasing the whole thing. I have used the Swahili lessons with my 12 year old daughter and we can both speak more Swahili in 5 lessons than I have in any of the other programs I have tried. Pimaleur is awesome! Sometimes it seems a little fast but you would be surprised at what you remember the second day. We do each lesson 2 days in a row just for good measure. We really love it.
