Now you can learn Yoruba on your iPhone
Nigeria is one of the biggest and busiest countries in Africa. Knowing a little of one of the main local languages, Yoruba, might serve you in good stead.
But if you’re like me – one with little time for night language classes – download the latest version of Genii Games Limited’s Yorùbá101.
The app is an all-in-one learning centre, which teaches everything from the 25-letter alphabet, to sounds, to useful sentences.
However, if you’d like a little more – like the themed vocabulary, you’re going to have to dish out a couple of dollars to get to the next level. But it’s well worth it for a slick, organised learning app.
This could easily be a five-star app if they could just get rid of the generic African music in the background and landscapeonly orientation. Otherwise, this is the app to get if you’re interested in expanding your grasp of African languages.
