Swahili, or Kiswahili, is the most widely spoken language in East Afria. Whether Kenya, Tanzania or Zanzibar - the second most common language in East Africa is Swahili. The language is easy to learn, as spelling and pronounciation rules are quite straightforward, and the language is written in Latin script. Once you catch on to it, you will also master the grammar without any problem.

You will not only learn the language, but also get an insight into the political and economic situation as well as the history and culture of East Africa.

Whether you are a tourist or a business person, an aid worker or a student - a few words in Swahili will open up the hearts of the people you meet.
