One of our newest language programmes for 2021, our Introductory Swahili 101 course begins with basic introductory grammar, vocabulary and conversation. Basic everyday vocabulary and expressions will be taught, always with a view to empowering learners so that they feel encouraged to build their own sentences and be able to make some simple conversation during our first Term. Distinctive aspects of Swahili language and culture will also be addressed.

The Swahili language is spoken by millions and is prevalent throughout much of Africa. It is one of the easiest languages for English speakers to learn and makes good use of English load words. Swahili has straight-forward grammar, and logical spelling and pronunciation patterns. Approximately 150 million people speak Swahili, and 16 countries in Africa have made Swahili its formal language. Swahili is also popular globally due to its use in music, news, radio and movies. Social media sites and streaming services like Twitter and Netflix also recognise Swahili. Disney has even borrowed Swahili words like Simba and Hakuna Matata to mention just a few. Many New Zealanders are now visiting Africa as tourists, skilled workers or volunteers. I have had the privilege to be a home tutor for a New Zealand doctor who was visiting Tanzania for her work experience.

EarthDiverse currently offers the following Swahili language courses on a rotating and evolving basis, with new intakes of students in Swahili 101 beginning in Term 1 (February) and again in Term 3 (July). Each cohort can begin advancing to the next course in the series.

- Swahili 101: Introductory Swahili (offered in 2021 Term 1 & 2021 Term 3)
- Swahili 102: Introductory Swahili (offered in 2021 Term 2 & 2021 Term 4)

Distance-Learning Options: Our Swahili courses offer distance learning options for those unable to attend classes in-person. Live-streamed classes are available via free Zoom software, or those unable to attend the date and time of the actual class sessions can watch the live-recorded video sessions on their computers, laptops, tablets or mobile devices and study at their own pace. These recorded sessions will be available soon after each class finishes so that you may watch the recorded video via any web-browser at your leisure. Your instructor will provide details on how to access your classes before your course begins.
