Learn Igbo

Om du reser till Nigeria kanske du vill lära dig det relevanta språket: Yoruba i väst, Igbo i söder eller Hausa i norr. Det finns faktiskt över 500 språk i Nigeria men dessa tre största bör få dig att gå runt. Alla dessa språk använder det latinska alfabetet. Igbo återvinner många ord för andra substantiv, så exempelvis ordet "tåg" är en fusion av ordet för ett fordon samt ordet för metall.

Fun facts about Igbo

One proverb goes 'He who eats with a spoon should remember those who eat with their hands', which means 'always remember those who have less'.

Words are often fused to form new meanings e.g. plane = high motor.

Igbo has two tones which can affect the meaning of words- for example, àkwà means bed but àkwá means egg.
