I believe that Luis has said that Zulu is one they want to get to sooner rather than later, but there's no action so far. I recommend the course DragonPolyglot mentioned above. Swahili course here, of course, doesn't have sound, so it works best in conjunction with something to help you nail the pronunciation.


I honestly interpreted the Zulu thing as a (somewhat unfortunate) joke :( It's not so different in tenor from other jokes of his, and he was speaking to an audience in South Africa, so it was a good applause line.

I'm tempted to believe the lack of any obviously progress on the matter constitutes at least a modicum of additional evidence in favor of this position.


How can i learn Zulu? Can you help me?
