Learn NYANJA Language

The Nyanja / Chewa language is one of the most commonly spoken languages in Zambia. It is also used in Malawi and Mozambique.

We currently do not have lessons in Nyanja.

We are still looking for a volunteer Nyanja speaker to start these lessons.

In the mean time, you can use the following FREE RESOURCES.

    Iv have learnt that nyanja and chichewa are slightly different languages. If you speak Chichewa in Zambia they will say you are from the village….like mufuna madzi? mafuna madzi?
