Why Swahili is a special language

Why Swahili is a special language

Kiswahili over years has been able to gain recognition, with the existence of different languages in the world Swahili language has merged to be one of the most spoken languages in Africa.

Most countries of Africa being on the front line of introducing it into their school curriculum. Examples of states that are focused on introducing the Swahili language include; South Africa, Botswana, Zambia, Namibia among other nations.

The reason for fighting to introduce it is that they feel that English is a colonial language and Kiswahili is more related to the African heritage and it must be offered with proper support to ensure that it excels within the international markets.

With such kind of reception, my advice to East African youths is that whenever they pursue a career in education they should consider the Swahili language as a priority because it is yet to be a gem and it will open up multiple job opportunities for them across the world.
