Learn Swahili in Kenya

If you looking for a unique and enriching cultural immersion experience, you can learn Swahili in Kenya with a Projects Abroad intensive Language Course. Swahili is a Bantu language that has been influenced by Arabic and more recently also by English. One of Swahili’s attributes is that its pronunciation is straightforward compared to some other languages.

With accommodation in the home of a local family, you’ll learn quickly and can practice what you’ve learnt with your hosts each day. Lessons are with a qualified language teacher and are tailored to your personal level and can be adapted to your interests and preferred teaching style. Once you have finished the course, you could go on to do meaningful work at a Care or Teaching project, or any one of the other meaningful projects and internships we have in Kenya.

Alternatively you can undertake a shorter 14-hour or 30-hour language course in Swahili that runs alongside your volunteer project. If you are planning on volunteering abroad for twelve weeks or more, you could also complete a 60-hour course alongside your project. These prices are in addition to your main project price.
