[Vancouver, Canada] — LingQ has announced the launch of Swahili to its ever-growing list of languages available for learners. This addition brings the total number of languages offered by LingQ to 42.

Swahili, also known as Kiswahili, is spoken by over 100 million people in East and Central Africa, making it one of the most widely spoken languages in Africa. With LingQ you learn Swahili through authentic content: real-life conversations, news articles and videos, short stories, music lyrics, whatever you’re interested in. Learn from the lessons in the library or create lessons from any content in Swahili you find online.

"We’re very excited to be adding our first African language." said Mark Kaufmann, CEO of LingQ. "We’re very excited to see how popular it is. Hopefully, we see some interest there and we can look at additional African languages to add. Either way, we’re always happy to add new languages an d look forward to exposing learners of Swahili to the LingQ approach."

In addition to Swahili, LingQ offers content in a range of other languages, including English, Spanish, French, German, Japanese, Chinese, and many more. LingQ’s unique content-based approach to language learning makes it a popular choice for language learners of all levels, from beginners to advanced learners.
