I can’t speak Yoruba is the first in a series of books aimed at speakers and learners of the Yoruba Language. It is a clever story that aims to teach children how to speak Yoruba, a native language of Nigeria. Through this unique learning experience, children are introduced to simple Yoruba words that will teach them about the body. With fun and interactive activity pages and illustrations, designed to engage readers as they learn, “I Can’t Speak Yoruba” hopes to achieve this and help keep the Yoruba Language alive at home and in diaspora.
Other Nigerian languages to follow soon are; Igbo and Hausa.
