"As someone who did not grow up in a household where Igbo was spoken, this class was invaluable to me. It started off basic enough that I wasn't lost, but still covered enough so that you could hold a basic conversation. I learned so much!"
"The class increased my love for the Igbo language and culture. The different components of the Igbo language was rigorous as I hoped. The instructor did a tremendous job giving us an overview of the Igbo language and culture. I would gladly take the class again to enhance my performance."
Igbo Express Class: A valuable and worthwhile introduction to the Igbo language. The inimitable professor integrates her passion for and understanding of Igbo language (and culture) to effectively teach and layer on the building blocks of Igbo language. Under her skilled guidance, we are not only learning to speak Igbo but also learning how to read and write Igbo! The professor is assisted by a team of knowledgeable TAs, who are always keen to help and to go above and beyond to ensure that we are keeping apace with the curriculum. The Oga in Charge has provided excellent course administration, timely providing us with updates and class materials. The Executive Director has also demonstrated superb hospitality, going the extra mile to make sure the overall experience is great. To top it off, the camaraderie amongst fellow beginners fosters confidence in learning. Daalu-olu!
It has been my lifelong goal to learn to speak Igbo and this course has brought me closer to achieving my dream. I appreciate the instructor's attention to the connection between Igbo language and culture. The more I learn the more fascinated I am by the beauty and poetry of the language.
