Why Learn Amharic Online at Berlitz

The official language of Ethiopia and the second most popular Semitic language in the world, Amharic is a language like no other. Nearly 30 million people speak Amharic across the globe, and in the US the figures are growing due in most part to a swelling Ethiopian population.

As there is no direct way of directly translating Amharic to English lettering, it is essential that when you learn the language, you learn to read, write and speak it. With Berlitz, that’s exactly what you’ll learn under the guidance of your native level speaking instructor.
