SWAHILI – A Textbook for Hebrew Speakers
By Arye Oded and Elena Dubnov
Swahili is one of the most widespread languages in the world, spoken by some 100 million people in East Africa and neighboring countries. The Organization of African Unity (today African Union) decided that Swahili would become the common language of all of the 53 countries in Africa, and it is taught in many universities. The authors of this book have taught Swahili in the Hebrew University and Tel Aviv University, and drew upon their experience to write this first Swahili textbook especially for Hebrew speakers. It is meant to be used as a basic text by students, businesspeople, diplomats and tourists, both in academic settings, or in individual study.
