Luganda is one of many Bantu languages that cover a huge geographical area of sub Saharan Africa. They come from an oral tradition and uTalk has the widest range of them to learn in the market. Nouns are classified differently, for example according to whether they're an animal, plant, or human and this can change the way a sentence works. But don't worry it’s easy to pronounce and you’ll soon get the hang of it.§Learn Luganda with uTalk
The greetings 'good morning' and 'good afternoon' are actually questions in Luganda: 'wasuze otya?' and 'osiibye otya?' mean 'how was your night?' and 'how was your day?' respectively.
The name of the Ugandan capital, Kampala, means 'hills of the impala'.
In Luganda, the day doesn't start at midnight like in English, but at dawn. What English-speakers would call seven o'clock is therefore one o'clock in Luganda, as it's the first hour of their day, while the English eight o'clock is the Luganda two o'clock - the second hour of the day.
