The Swahili-speaking coast of Africa has many attractions: its beaches, safaris, and great cultural diversity. This dictionary and phrasebook contains all of the vocabulary and phrases necessary to communicate in Swahili, the most widely spoken African language. Designed for the visitor, the phrasebook offers terms and phrases for travel and daily life situations; a two-way dictionary contains over 2500 essential Swahili words. A basic Swahili grammar and cultural information arc also included. Spoken originally along the eastern coast (the name kiSwahili means 'coastal language'), and now the official language of Tanzania as well as a major language in Kenya, Uganda and the eastern Congo, Swahili is the lingua franca of Eastern Africa, with over 40 million speakers.
