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 16-20:

        I have studied languages in various schools and on my own with different books but I think this is the absolute best way for the average person to learn a language - totally unencumbered by reading or writing, getting the grammar in small, practical doses. The accumulative aspect of the course is the best way to go in learning a foreign language, it is very close to how children learn.

          I never write reviews or take surveys but I love this product. It works so well. I've checked out other language learning programs from the library and they don't work at all. This method is perfect for my brain. I listen while I wash the dishes or wait for the bus. It helps me memorize tons of words and now I know the proper pronunciation.
