My Family and I feel so fortunate to have found italki and then on top of that to have found a great teacher who not only is an excellent teacher but also my daughter loved and is looking forward to learn from during the next class. Been Kenyan born and raised,I speak broken Swahili and every attempt I have made in teaching my daughter who is American born Swahili has failed. I found italki online and found Miss Weru ,loved her intro and my daughter immediately picked her .During class we had technical difficulties and she was so patient with us and even helped us troubleshoot,I thought since lesson time had passed that she wouldn’t teach but she still taught her,We are so excited to be on this journey and to have some consistency with the same loving teacher.I could tell right away it was going be great and I can finally practice with my daughter.She doesn’t even want a play date on Saturday morning coz she is looking forward to learning Swahili. I hope this app lasts a long time!

Today was my 30-minute trial class with Shelmith, and I have decided to take more classes with her because she made learning relaxing and fun! I am a complete beginner Swahili speaker, so I was a little nervous going in. However, not only did I learn important things about pronunciation, letters used in Swahili, and greetings, but I learned about the history of the Swahili language. I left the class motivated to study, practice, and come to the next class prepared to learn more! Thanks Shelmith!

Mwalimu Shelmith is outstanding! She teaches perfectly to my level and my style of learning. I love how she breaks down words and goes deep into the meaning and story behind them. She teaches interesting vocabulary. She is also so friendly and energetic. She comes prepared and has good subject material. I really enjoy our lessons!

Trial lesson was really great. Made to feel accepted and like learning quite a bit of Swahili was possible. Teacher had a good plan that sounds doable! She was very warm and it was fun.
