Hujambo! My name is Karen Stringer, Ph.D. Creator of the LSN on-demand platform. Like you, I know what it's like to try to learn a new language in a non-immersion setting as opposed to being immersed in the language and culture. It is hard! One day it feels like you are making progress, then the next day it feels like you know nothing at all…
I KNEW THERE HAD TO BE A BETTER WAY AFTER I:
- Spent hours and hours on YouTube®
- Memorized 400 words from Duolingo® but was still no better for it.
- Tried to use 5 different resources all telling me something different and I was getting overwhelmed.
- Trying to work with a tutor. As a mom to a special needs boy I simply do not have the time to meet twice a week with a tutor to see results.
All this without any results to show for it. Sometimes I wondered if I was cut out for this…Maybe you've felt this way?
The good news is, it does not have to be this way. I learned a better way of learning and in turn, over the last couple of years, I have helped over 100 students to achieve their goals of learning Kiswahili. It is my mission to provide Swahili learners with the tools they need to succeed so that they can accomplish their mission whatever it is.
Whether it is service in Swahili-speaking countries, volunteering in local communities, connecting at a deeper level with loved ones, or simply better communication with your Swahili-speaking clientele, I can help you.
I designed this platform for busy adults who desire quality and flexibility in their learning. It is what I wished I had when I was learning Arabic and French a while back. (Thankfully with Spanish my experience has been much better) And I am extremely excited to have this opportunity to share it with you!
What will you do with your newfound fluency?
