Awesome benefits of the Shona for Beginners Course:

  • Great foundation on Phoenics

    Shona is a very simple language once you get a good grasp of foundation of phoenics and word structuring. It is a 'Say it as it is!' language and hence it is always a good idea to start building at the foundation!

  • Competent Pronunciation

    You will not only learn to read and use common phrases used everyday but you will also be encouraged to pronounce properly. You will be speaking like a Shona! After all, what use is having words in your head but have no one understanding what you are saying!

  • Culture

    Behind the Shona language is a people and a country rich in culture. This can sometimes go unappreciated when communication is not from an indigenous writer. This course offers a little taste of Zimbabwe and will leave you wanting to explore more!
