Somali Language

Postby Narcissistic » Tue Feb 09, 2010 2:53 am

What is the best way to improve your vocabulary? I have tried reading news articles but the language used is far too complex.

Are there like any beginner level books you can get on ebay or something ?

I remember I had this book in my house along with a somali dictionary. It is okay, but it is standard somali, which nobody speaks so you end up sounding like a moron.

Narcsissit,

As Helwaa said, just talk to other Somalis specially your parents if they speak Somali. The best way is to practice...What was the proverb? Practice makes perfect :up:

Ganjaweed,

You know perfect Somali :up: Good for you...

Qoraxeey, my folks always say speak Somali at home. I would but I just feel so silly. There is just something about me that can't handle not being able to articulate myself properly. :(

Lol masha'Allah good on Hyper. I might take a leaf out of his book. :D :up:
