Just this afternoon as I was strolling through the street of Google Play Store I came across an app called Duolingo. It’s an app for learning different languages across the world. I downloaded the app and see what it got and to my utmost surprise, I couldn’t find any African language on the platform, but why???
OK, I hit google in search of apps or any platform for learning any African language but again I was surprised and dissapointed. In the course of my search, I landed on different forums and webpages where people were asking for where to learn different African languages. Infact, I checked Duolingo forum and see how people were massively requesting for African languages to be added to the platform.
Now, I’ve identify a problem which is lack of learning resources for all these African languages. And am proposing a solution. I dunno how good it is but it’s just what I was able to come up with.
The solution is to build something like an app similar to Duolingo specifically for learning African languages. And it’s will be free. There is going to be one or two tutors for each language.
How the tutors will be compensated, How to get these tutors, how to get people to use the app and how to fund this idea are some of the questions that have been bothering for sometime now.
