A Quick Course in Kanza


Below are two lists of the same Kanza language material. One is sorted only by theme, while the other is sorted according to a plan of study. You can choose which option suits you best. The links will take you to pages where you can click on objects to hear the words pronounced. When studying, be sure to click each link at least THREE times in succession and repeat each word after the recording. Repetition will help you learn the material as quickly as possible. Hovering over the images will reveal spellings in the Kanza alphabet. Try and learn them along with the sounds. You won't need to spend more than an hour learning the material each day--spending any more time than that won't help you learn the material any faster. Don't move ahead until you've learned the material you're studying. Review as often as you can. Lastly, USE WHAT YOU HAVE LEARNED as much as you can. Try and collect a few blank stares from friends and colleagues, then direct them back here so they, too, can learn some Kanza!
