Jen and I were invited to a celebration the other day. We ended up being the only foreigners at this celebration. The conversations and annoucements were all in Kinyarwanda. This gave me additional resolve to try and learn Kinyarwanda, the local language. I have been able to learn a small amount already…primarily for use at the market. We received a binder with several self-lessons when we arrived here. But our intention was to learn French, which it still is…a little bit at a time through audio lessons. A colleague gave me a website that had all of the Kinyarwanda self-lessons online. Would you like to learn with me???
