KISWAHILI CLASSES @ PAN AFRICAN CONNECTION BOOKSTORE, ART GALLERY AND RESOURCE CENTER | Dallas | Texas | United States

Today’s Africans (in America) have the greatest chance to rekindle social, spiritual, and economic bonds with the continent, but it starts with a common language.  Language is at the heart of our revolution, and kiswahili is one of the most widely spoken languages in Africa.

This is one part english-kiswahili exchange with the Congolese community.  Attendees are also encouraged to join us for english conversation classes held in the Congolese neighborhoods.  Join us!

RESOURCES PROVIDED:   Bring your library card for access to free resources.  You can continue to learn in your free time.

YOUR FIRST LESSON:

JAMBO (JAHM-BOW) = Hello

JINA LANGU NI (GEE-NUH LAHN-GOO NEE) = My name is

JINA LAKO NANI? (GEE-NUH LAH-KOH NAH-NEE) = What is your name?

KWA HERI (QUAH HAIRY) = Goodbye

  1. Good afternoon,
    I have a 3 yo daughter, I was just wondering if you have any events or classes or children. I am trying to figure out the best way to teach her about her history….with age appropriate info!

    Thanks !

    • Good day to you! Yes we do have activities for children and good children’s books too. There’s art classes every first saturday of the month. We do drum circles every sunday at two with adults and children. We just had a children’s play a couple sundays ago. We were having children’s African history classes every second and fourth saturday of the month and those will start back up pretty soon. I can put you on our email list to keep you posted on what we have going on.
