Jambo!: Learn an African Language this Summer!


Summer 2015: June 8 – June 18

This exciting FREE two-week day program will introduce a select group of high school students to an African language and contemporary Africa. In the Summer 2015, the focus will be on Swahili, a language that is widely spoken in Central and Eastern Africa.

During the two weeks, the students will be immersed in learning the basics of the Swahili language as well as contemporary issues of African culture. Each morning students will be engaged in fun ways of learning including videos, popular music, poetry and drama. In the late mornings students will be engaged in creative activities including music and dance.

All students will receive a t-shirt, language & study materials as well as a certificate of completion. Apply early as there are only a few slots available. The program is sponsored by the Center for African Studies with funds provided by a U.S. Department of Education Title VI grant.

Program benefits include:

  • Learning the basics of Swahili language and contemporary Africa
  • Learning about the second largest continent and its global impact
  • University of Florida certificate of participation in African studies
  • Free tuition and materials
