Introducing the Swahili for Summiteers Guide

Mambo, rafiki yangu!*

Ready for The Global Voices Summit 2012? A small Working Group of Global Voices authors and editors spent the last few days preparing this little treat: the Swahili for Summiteers Guide – which we hope will introduce you to Swahili, foster your curiosity towards this amazing language, and serve as a useful tool for getting around Nairobi and surrounding areas.

Beyond the usual suspects

Unlike most tourist guides, in this file you'll find some citizen media terms and expressions to get you acquainted with Swahili blogging terms.

The Guide was built collaboratively with the helping hands of Deogratias, Njeri, Ndesanjo, Ika, Christian, Collins, Thalia and Luis Henrique.

Print it or download it to your devices. Works fine as flight entertainment!

Kwa heri**. See you soon!

*Hi, my friend.
**Bye bye
