Swahili via Skype in Language Life School

Learn Swahili online

Swahili, or Kiswahili, is the language of the Swahili people. It is the most widely-spoken Bantu language and one of the most important languages of the African continent. Swahili is a governmental language in Tanzania, Kenya, and Uganda. Interestingly, Swahili is the only African language to become a working language of the African Union and is the official language of the East African Community. Modern Swahili uses the Latin alphabet in writing. The name Swahili originates in the plural form of the Arabic word sāhil, sawāhil, which means “coasts”. Swahili’s grammar is based on concording classes. In the 20th century, interest in Swahili increased significantly. In present day, Swahili is taught and studied at almost all major universities and research centres in Germany, England, France, Italy, Belgium, Japan, China, the USA, and other countries.

Testimonials of our students

Olga Karaulova
Olga Karaulova,
Moscow – Rome

I want to tell you about my teacher, Chiara. When studying a language, the most important is not ability or the time you are willing to spend achieving the desired results. The most important is the specialist who is leading you to your goals. I began studying with Chiara as part of a small group , and then, when she left Russia, my lessons continued through Skype. I was skeptical towards the idea of lessons through Skype but I really didn't want to lose this teacher. And I was not misled – there are many advantages to studying through Skype as well: you don't need to run off anywhere after your lesson, your lessons take place in a comfortable environment, and most importantly, these are individual lessons. Individual lessons are twice as effective as group lessons, I can already see! And now about Chiara. She is a teacher sent from heaven: she is not simply a native speaker, she knows how to teach people how to converse to understand the structure and grammar. Chiara employs her own teaching method, using contemporary Italian textbooks which have been developed specially for teaching foreigners. She is demanding, not only with regards to her students, but also with regards to herself: I have not met Italians with such a string work ethic although I need Italian for work and am in daily contact with them. I can say that I am learning Italian thanks to this specialist. And I heartily recommend Chiara to those who want to get results: believe me! With her, you'll get them! Buon studio a tutti!

There is a wide selection of Italian teachers in Moscow, but despite this, for a long time I was unable to find a real professional amongst the native speakers. Everyone knows that much depends on your guide in the interesting world of foreign languages, the person who will strengthen your desire to delve into the most complicated grammatical peculiarities and will help you enrich your speech with beautiful and correct turns of phrase. How I've gotten lucky! After two years of studying my favourite language at different centres I took up individual lessons with Chiara! She speaks Russian fluently and can therefore understand the mistakes her students make due to their native language. I have always been very pleased with the variety in materials (she provides not only textbooks, but also newspaper articles, audio, and video) which she uses in the lessons with detailed explanations of the subtleties of the Italian language. Already I have begun to feel notice significant progress! After Chiara left Russia, I decided to continue studying with her, namely in order to prepare for the CELI exam, but through Skype. Lessons are, as before, intensive, entertaining, but with an emphasis on writing, review of various subjects, retelling situations and practising pronunciation. Working with Chiara I really appreciate how she responds quickly to all my questions and difficulties that arise in my individual work, how she carefully checks, corrects, and elaborates upon the written texts, and during our lessons points out my mistakes to me. I am happy to recommend this energetic, sensitive teacher who cares about the success or failure of her students, to those who value the quality of the learning process and are aiming towards achieving a certain result!

I have been taking lessons with Chiara for around three months. She has a very responsible approach towards teaching, always prepares materials for the lesson and corrects my speech effectively while managing to write down all corrections,which is convenient for when I am reviewing my mistakes. And she is herself a very pleasant person. :) Thank you, Chiara!
