Hello !! I am trying to learn Swahili, but as there is no voice reading the sentences, I don't know how to pronounce the words... Will that come? Because even if sometimes the voice is weird, it helps a lot!!!!

Have you tried memrise? The courses tend to be of mixed quality but some are pretty good and most of them have audio

Do the Memrise courses ever go into complete sentences like DuoLingo, or is it just memorizing vocabulary all the way up? I've tried a few of their courses and haven't retained much because of a lack of context. But I haven't gone higher than the 5th or 6th course for any particular language.

Swahili is pronounced almost as it's written, with the stress on the penultimate syllable, and no tones. So once you've learned the vowel and consonant sounds, you're quite far.
