Discover the rich treasures of Africa

We show the diversity of a continent

Africa is not just a continent; it is a mosaic of cultures, traditions and languages. At Sankofa Lingua, we believe that language is the key to unlocking this incredible heritage.

We offer courses in a variety of African languages, from Swahili and Zulu to Amharic and Yoruba.

But why is this so important? Africa’s languages are not only means of communication; they are also carriers of cultural knowledge. Through them, stories are passed on, traditions are preserved, and communities are strengthened.

Why we teach languages

Our vision: preservation of cultural assets

We live in a globalized world where many of these languages and cultures are in danger of being lost. Our mission is therefore to create a sustainable awareness of this rich diversity.

At Sankofa Lingua, we go beyond just language learning. Our courses are designed to provide a holistic understanding of each culture. We integrate music, art, and literature into the classroom to provide a comprehensive context.

Our teachers are not only language experts, but also ambassadors of their own cultures. They share their knowledge and experience with you so that each course is a journey through the fascinating world of Africa.
