Most people skip over African languages but I think they’re very beautiful and underrated. I like learning the cultures behind every language I learn

I am interested in language learning generally and wanted to try out a major African language. Also, I came across Swahili years ago when studying linguistics at university and found its structures quite fascinating, so when I saw it was offered on Duolingo, thought I'd give it a shot. It's quite challenging due to being very different from the Western European languages I'm used to and having fewer cognates with English, but as fascinating as I recall it being all those years ago.
