Publisher's Summary

The Pimsleur® Method has worked for millions all over the world. Totally portable; simple to use; Pimsleur works so you don’t have to. Swahili Phase 1, Unit 1 contains 30 minutes of spoken language practice, with an introductory conversation, and isolated vocabulary and structures. Detailed instructions enable you to understand and participate in the conversation. The lesson contains full practice for all vocabulary introduced in this unit. The emphasis is on pronunciation and comprehension, and on learning to speak Swahili. Swahili, or Kiswahili, is the most widely-spoken African language, and is used throughout East Africa. 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. This new Swahili 30-unit course replaces our original Compact Swahili 10-unit course with new and expanded vocabulary, scenarios, grammar and structures.


What the Critics Say

"Pimsleur programs provide plenty of positive reinforcement that will keep learners on track, and we found that Pimsleur gave us more proficiency and confidence in speaking the new language than any of the other language programs we reviewed." (AudioFile magazine)

A wonderful product, but overpriced

Purchasing one 30 min lesson each is not reasonable in my, humble opinion. In the end, it may be worth it, but I cannot afford it

Great method. It's messing with my Kindle, though.

Would you consider the audio edition of Swahili Phase 1, Unit 01 to be better than the print version?

We listened to this item several times but then my Kindle would go blank and I could not hear or open the Swahili program. I cannot delete it.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Swahili Phase 1, Unit 01?

How much my children pick up on this language.
