As an adult, have you encountered these setbacks in learning Swahili?

No matter what methods you use, you feel frustrated in learning Swahili. When you try to recall the things you’ve learned in school, your mind goes completely blank. As you already need to work during weekdays, you may feel tired and no motivation to self-learn Swahili. So, as an adult, how can you learn Swahili effectively…

Difficult to Apply in Life and Work

Learning Swahili by rote tends to be quickly forgotten. You will also find it hard to apply in a flexible way.

Lacks Confidence to Speak Out

Cannot fully understand what people said in Swahili, meanwhile, you are afraid of making a fool of yourself in speaking Swahili.

Do Not Know Where to Start

Even there are lots of resources on the internet, you may not know which one is suitable and useful to yourself.

I’ve studied Swahili for a long time, why I still unable to achieve mastery in Swahili?

Previously studying Swahili is to satisfy the examination needs, so you pretty much learned everything by rote. If you cram all the knowledge into your brain without applying them into daily life, those grammar rules and vocabularies can only remain in theoretical stage which is of little use for practice.

3 BIG Ways for Adults to Enhance Swahili Proficiency

You probably might feel dull and boring when Swahili only appears in textbooks. You might also don’t know how to apply Swahili in your daily life even you spent countless late nights boning up on it.

It is important to make learning FUN, by means of incorporating Swahili into your everyday life! In our course, tutors will develop student’s Swahili mindset through realistic role plays and real-life scenario. For instance, what happens when an Swahili speaker asks you for directions. When you keep trying to think in Swahili and speak it out, it can deepen your understanding on Swahili.

Speak more is always the straight way to improve Swahili fluency and accuracy. However, it is hard to find a foreigner to practice with you. Besides, usually adults have a stronger sense of pride, they may stay silent for fear of making a mistake. These thoughts will only hinder your Swahili improvement.

Online learning can break through geographical restrictions and mental block. Students can make a conversation with teachers of different nationalities anytime and anywhere. Tutors will encourage students to speak more and rectify their mistakes. Through repetitive practicing, you can develop your confidence in communicating in Swahili.

There are various organizations launched adult Swahili classes. However, majority of them put emphasis on theoretical knowledge. You don’t know how to put these materials into practices. In addition, the teacher has to consider all students’ progress which cannot take care of your specific needs.

One-to-one learning could completely cater your learning needs. The tutor will modify the ways of teaching to special requirements and abilities of each student. For instance, if you want to learn Swahili for travel, the tutor could provide related materials and contents which allows you use in practice immediately. Along with flexible class schedule and locations, it is perfect match for busy life.

Online Swahili Tutor FAQ
Who are our Swahili tutors?

AmazingTalker handpicks only the best local and international Swahili tutors.

Each of our tutors have to go through a rigorous selection process before becoming an AT Swahili tutor, and their performance will also be constantly monitored.

Should I choose a native speaker as my Swahili tutor?

One of the best way to learn Swahili is to immerse yourself in an environment where you can only use the Swahili language.

However, if you do not currently have a solid base of spelling or vocabulary, we would recommend you a tutor for basic levels, and you will be fluent in 3 months by learning with a private Swahili tutor.

If you have a wide range of vocabulary but lack the opportunity to practice, we would recommend you to choose a native speaker as your Swahili language coach.
