Why learn Swahili?

If you want to work or travel in East Africa, then understanding Swahili is important. Swahili is an excellent trade language that crosses cultural and national borders, so you can use your language skills in Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda, and Burundi (to name just a few places where it is widely spoken). Swahili is also a relatively uncomplicated language to learn, so if you’re looking for a new skill to improve your mind and keep you entertained, learning Swahili may be just what you’ve been looking for.
