Learn Chichewa

Chichewa 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 you’ll soon get the hang of it.
