About the Book
Yoruba, one of the national languages of Nigeria, is spoken by more than 30 million people worldwide. This book’s 15 lessons, designed with the beginning student in mind, are ideal for both classroom use and self-study. Each opens with a dialogue about an everyday topic, which is then broken down for the study of grammar and vocabulary. Cultural notes give the material its proper context, and exercises reinforce the student’s mastery of the lesson. The accompanying audio (available for free download) further complements the lesson material by helping the student learn the language as spoken. Beginner’s Yoruba also includes information on the various aspects of Yoruba culture, including religion, songs and folklore.
