    Peace Fam,

    We have a forum member who has (tentatively) agreed to teach Yoruba depending on forum interest of willing participants.

    I myself have wanted to learn a mother tongue for some time and several elders here including oldsoul and sunship have expressed its importance.

    First and foremost, I want my daughter to learn and if this gets off the ground I will have her taking part without question.

    Are any other members interested for themselves or their family?

    Let us know what the interest level is with this.

    PEACE

    I'm interested

    Will this be the only Afrikan language being taught? I hope not.

    Peace

    (Let me keep it simple)

    Yes, I am very interested in learning Yoruba. All you have to do, is let me know when the course/courses will take place.

    I'm with you on that one queentswana. Seeing how I'm immersed in Spanish right now. I don't think I could handle another language.

    What do yall,who have studied another language think? I really would like to learn some of my African brethren language,but I've committed and paying for this one. I think it would be to hard on me to learn an African one right now.

    What do you think Warriors and Queens.

    [Emphasis mine] :D

    I have a very good Spanish software program that you can have if you want it. :D

    I can't speak Spanish yet. But, I will start learning once I get my computer back up and running.
