Meet Mwalimu Oloo
I am a graduate of Kenyatta University (Bachelor of Arts in Kiswahili
and Literature in English). On completion I attended a refresher course
at the University of Dar es Salaam in 2012. I have been teaching Kiswahili to children, teenagers and adults since 2008. I teach children learning Kiswahili at school as well as those learning it purely as a second language.
My students are from various countries including Kenya, Canada, Italy, the U.S., United Kingdom, Cuba, Germany, and more. They are missionaries, students on exchange programs, diplomats, researchers, tourists, development workers, interns and business people.
I have also partnered with a relocation company, Relocation Services
from Italy, as their Nairobi-based Swahili tutor. I have done the same with Cactus Languages from the United Kingdom.
In addition to teaching, I also offer translation, interpretation, editing and transcription services in Swahili.
My training includes online classes, in-class instruction, assignments, reading and group activities outside of class.
To offer our learners and clients language training, related services and cultural knowledge, leading to academic excellence and career growth as well as an enriching experience in Kenya.
To be the most preferred global language services provider.
Swahili, also known as Kiswahili, is a Bantu language and it has its roots at the East African Coast. It is the first language of the Swahili
There are between 100 million and 150 million people who speak in Swahili globally, mostly spread across Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi, Malawi, Somalia, Zambia, Mozambique, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), the Comoros and South Africa.
For a long time it was Kenya’s national language and in 2010 it became Kenya’s official language alongside English.
Swahili is also Uganda’s official language alongside English.
It is Tanzania’s official and national language. It is also the national language of the Democratic Republic of Congo together with Kikongo, Lingala and Tshiluba.
Swahili is the “lingua franca” of the East African Community (EAC). Lingua franca is a language that is adopted as a common language among speakers whose native languages are different. In 2004, it became one of the African Union’s official languages.
South Africa authorised the teaching of Swahili in its schools from 2020.
