Description

One of the most exotic languages you can learn as a second language is Swahili. Also known as Kiswahili, Swahili is spoken by at least 5 million as a native language and a whopping 135 million speakers as a second language. This makes Swahili as one of the most in-demand languages to learn. Thankfully, learning Swahili Online is not as difficult as it once used to be.

The initial spread of the language across Africa is owed to the traders from the Arab region that carried the language as far west as Congo and North to Uganda. Later when the Germans colonized parts of Africa, they chose to use Swahili as the administrative language. The Tanganyika and the English standardized the language and helped create the Latin based script it still uses today. Swahili, because of its scale and presence in the continent, is often the default language used by African-Americans to show their connection to their roots and the motherland.

The earliest known writings in Swahili are found from the 1700s, mostly written in the Arabic script.

Culture:

The Swahili culture is driven by Islamic values as the majority of the Swahili speaking people of East Africa are Muslims. This is evident in their family values, social interaction, and societal structures. They love spicy food and soccer and are a big fan of rice and vegetables.

Variations:

Swahili is an amazingly fluid and rich language with many different dialects even within one country. Due to the vastness of the region in which Swahili is spoken, many dialects are difficult to comprehend, even for native speakers.

Why you should learn Business Swahili?

With over 50 million speakers in eastern and central Africa alone, Swahili opens doors to easy communication across the African continent (and wherever Swahili speakers dwell)

If you like to travel and explore new cultures and have set your eyes upon Africa for business or pleasure, learning Swahili will go a long way. It will help you understand the Swahili people and their way of life better and form stronger partnerships when doing business specially in Uganda, Tanzania, and Kenya.

The Swahili Alphabet: Modern-day Swahili is mostly written using the Latin alphabet. However, unlike English, Swahili does not have X and Q in terms of writing as well as sound. There are 24 letters in the Swahili alphabet.

Difficulty Level: Although it has its roots in Arabic, Swahili is one of the easiest languages to learn as an English speaker due to its phonetic nature and ease of understanding when it comes to reading and learning.

Region: Swahili is spoken in but not limited to Tanzania, Burundi, Congo (Kinshasa) Kenya, Mayotte, Mozambique, Oman, Rwanda, Somalia, South Africa, Uganda, UAE, and the USA

Swahili can be written using the Arabic script as well as the Latin script.
