Why Should You Learn Swahili Language?

Swahili is an official language of the east africa community (eac), and in each individual country (tanzania, kenya, uganda, and rwanda), swahili is among the official languages used in school and everyday interactions. being able to understand and speak swahili will make your travel considerably easier and enjoyable., the swahili language was invented from the exchange between arab merchants and east african locals trading across the coast of the indian ocean. therefore, it is by no surprise that swahili is a vital contemporary language for businessmen and investors from all over east africa. using the language takes away ambiguity and opens opportunities to invest in local firms, or to work abroad in mombasa or zanzibar, swahili is the first african language to be feted by the united nations (un) and is one of the official languages of the african union (au). swahili is among the top 10 most spoken languages in the world, with more than 200 million total speakers. it is the only non-colonial and cross-border language, spoken in east africa, congo, oman, and south africa. it even has its own world swahili day (7 th july).
