In setting up a forum as a language center. To become a part of the global community we need to be able to communicate with other people. It is important that we learn the commercial language of Africa: Swahili and also Chinese. We could have an online penpal system where bilingual people come in and help others learn a language through natural conversation. We could have recordings to help us learn pronunciation and tutorials to help us learn grammar and usage And while we are learning the languages we will also be buillding connections with Africans in the diaspora that could lead to collective synergy. When I taught a class before everybody thought it was important for me to teach writing but nobody thought it was important for them to learn. The language center would not depend on one person trying to hold people's attention but would be a resource center they can use at their own time with lots of people contributing. Would you be interested?
