Who enrolls for the Swahili Proficiency Programs ?

Children (6-18 years)

We teach the children of East African immigrants living in the diaspora using a curriculum adapted to their age.

The curriculum includes : reading, listening, speaking and writing lessons. In addition, children are encouraged to speak Swahili at home with their parents or in class with other children.

East Africa diaspora

2nd and 3rd generation East African immigrants born in the diaspora suffers from not being able to communicate in the language of their parents. Often when they want to learn Swahili, they sometimes face mockery and other form of emotional abuse that lead to discouragement and abandonment. We understand their needs and we are equipped to satisfy them based on our successful experience.


Whether you want to learn Swahili to communicate with your spouse or in-laws; or you are doing business in East Africa and work with East African; or simply out of a spirit of discovery and curiosity, we can help you !
