    Thrilled with this type of teaching Bemba!! I have 4 GREAT friends in Lusaka and thereabouts nad when they start writing in Bemba, I try to as well, so this is such a gift, I’m going to put it on my Favorites bar to refer to. I’ve been writing things down in Bemba, but having an easier way to respond to my friends – this is AWESOME!

    Thank you SO much!! (Obrigada demais!! – Brazilian Portuguese – I learned with a Verb book and enmeshing myself among Brazilians who always corrected me). 😀 I really want to add Bemba as a fluent language in time (ASAP!) :-)

    Thank you so much for the audio translations. Nothing else has helped me learn any Bemba – now I can say hello, I’m fine how are you, and goodbye. I’m going to Zambia in just 4 weeks!

    Natotela sana, I'm from the Netherlands & I'm trying to learn iciBemba so I can speak with my Zambian grandmother. Actually hearing the sounds makes a huge difference so thanks a lot!

      Mike, we are glad to learn that you find the lessons useful. We’ll try and include more audio lessons.
      We could do one entitled “A day with grandma.” If you have any particular words you would like to see included in the lesson, let us know.
