Publisher's Summary

Can learning another language be as easy as speaking your own? Yes - with Pimsleur it’s that easy. Learn on your own time, at your own pace, and wherever you choose. Swahili Phase 1, Unit 5 builds on material taught in prior units. It includes 30 minutes of spoken language practice, with an introductory conversation, new vocabulary, and new structures. Detailed instructions enable you to understand and participate in the conversation. The lesson contains full practice for all vocabulary introduced in this unit and in previous units. 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.
