LONDON (ages: 17 – 35)
This September Okwu ID are offering a 4 week short course which will aim to teach you Igbo in a fun and relaxed way.
Level: Beginner – Intermediate
The standalone classes will be centred around a single topic and students will be taught words, phrases and dialogue that can be used in everyday conversation.
- Greetings + Introductions
Students will be given a chance to practice and develop skills focusing on listening and speaking (some reading and writing will be taught too!).
Each class will feature a 15-20 min talk on aspects of Igbo culture ranging from the importance of the Oji (Kola Nut) to Igbo folklore.
Specific dates, location and costs are yet to be confirmed.
