When I couldn’t find appropriate Igbo learning materials for my children, I started researching the best methods for second language learning.

I discovered that stories are a very powerful tool in language learning. Using my digital media, education, and Igbo language skills, I have been developing useful learning materials for Igbo as a second language.

I use stories in almost every learning material I create – from dictionaries, story books, work books to audio and video lessons. These range from one-sentence stories, to historical stories, dialogues, monologues, traditional proverbs, folktales, biblical, mythical, contemporary and current news stories.

Using feedback from my children, students and comments on social media, I have refined my work over time to make it a balance between formal and informal Igbo, so that the learner can become fluent in speaking, reading, writing and listening in Igbo language. The main version Igbo I use is Igbo Izugbe ( Formal written Igbo), which is the version used in education and media.

Although the online Igbo courses are primarily for personal use, I am also creating separate materials for teachers to use in taught classes. These materials will also come in handy for parents who want to teach their children.
