IMPORTANCE OF LEARNING SWAHILI - PART 2
4. Swahili Helps You Build Relationships
Eastern and Central Africa, building strong relationships is key to doing
business. Learning Swahili can help you build relationships with your clients,
employees, and partners. Speaking the language shows that you are invested in
the local community and that you respect the local culture. It also helps you
to communicate more effectively and build trust with your business partners.
5. Grow Your Research and Business Opportunities
you intend to research, study and teach abroad, or learn about the economics of
Africa in a global marketplace, Swahili is poised to become the language of
commerce in Africa. Its usefulness for research and travel is one of the most
cited reasons given for studying Swahili. Many schools offer Swahili as an
elective, and IT infrastructure is growing which will enhance economic and research opportunities.
6. Swahili is needed in the market
telecommunication companies need people who can speak fluent Swahili to handle
customers who don’t understand English. For example, at Tunapanda Institute we
do help clients to do research on their product and during this research, we
use Swahili to allow our interviewee to be more open and talk about the
product. In East Africa, most customer care agents have to be fluent in Swahili
and English in order to get a job.
7. Useful in Working
Swahili is very useful if you`re working broadly across East Africa, won`t be settled in one place, and will need to communicate with a variety of people across national and ethnic lines.
8. Discover a whole new world of entertainment
Did you know that there’s already so much Swahili around you? Discover meanings behind names from popular films like The Lion King, Sense 8, and social games like Jenga. Why do we say 'Kiswahili' in East Africa and not Swahili? Explore new music genres of East Africa’s urban music scene like Bongo Flava, Genge, Afro soul, and Taarab. You will gain a better understanding of traditions and current lifestyles of East Africans from such music.
