Two Things

  1. I’m learning Swahili. In about a month, after I’ve gone through a good number of the lessons that I’m taking, I would like to find a way to start practicing with native speakers here in Denver. I think that would make the lessons more useful and the information stick in my head a little better. If anyone has any ideas on how I could achieve that goal, suggestions are welcome.
  2. Since AfricaBlog is on hiatus until I can get it imported into ExpressionEngine--and that means traffic is at a steady near nothing--my Africa-related posts will be going here. As such, I’ll be adding Knowing Africa to my blogroll. There are a bunch of useful links to information on the site.

Well, I cannot direct you to people with whom you may practice; however, I can commend you for wanting a practical route for improving your skill and fluency of the language.

I think because R and I speak Spanish in front of the children when we are wanting to have a public private conversation, it has disposed our children to both the accent, and being comfortable in attempting to speak it themselves.

Excellent choice.

I’m a believer in the idea that learning a new language is extremely good for keeping the mind limber. Aside from that, Swahili is a beautiful language--strange, exotic, and just hard enough to pronounce that it keeps the brain fully engaged.

Have you checked out the website Meetup ? I signed up in some Republican meetup groups right after the election there. Most groups meet once a month on whatever area of interest they have. It’s a cool service, something that otherwise would be very difficult to find.

It’s cool that you are interested in Africa, it’s one of the untapped markets as far as being mostly uncivilized and extremely poverty stricken. They need someone on their side, I’m glad you’ve stepped up to help in at least some way.

The past few days, it’s been rumored (and certainly not verified) on Queens of the Stone Age and Mark Lanegan message boards that the singer went into a critical care unit a few days ago. The rumor is that he went in after a massive drug overdose. It’s true or it’s not, and I’ll probably never know. But either way, it’s believable; drugs are nothing new to Lanegan.
