What you Learn:
Igbo has many dialects and pronunciation variations based on cities and towns. Unlike competing apps, which teach Owerri/Ngwa dialects of Igbo, iSabi™ Igbo is based on Standard Igbo--the unified language created by Society for Promoting Igbo Language and Culture (SPILC). SPILC created Standard Igbo by selecting words and phrases that are in common use throughout Igbo land. Standard Igbo defines the proper lexicons, syntax and rules of Igbo language. It is the version of Igbo that has been widely written and taught in schools since the early1970s. It is the de facto official Igbo.
Standard Igbo does not belong to any particular region or dialect of Igboland. Yes Owerri, Standard Igbo is not Anambra.
Understanding Standard Igbo will give you access to the most widely spoken Igbo and provide you with the building blocks for understanding any dialect of Igbo. A student studying English language would not start their learning by studying Texan, Ebonics or Pittsburghese. Instead, the student would study Standard English, which defines proper syntax and rules for the language. Why would an Igbo language student study Owerri/Ngwa dialects instead of Standard Igbo? Don't be that guy. Choose iSabi™ Igbo!
Unlike other applications that teach you Igbo by mimicking romance languages, iSabi™ Igbo gives you the foundation for learning and speaking the language in the shortest amount of time. We believe that practice makes perfect! You will learn how to pronounce letters of the Igbo alphabet—especially those that have combination letters such as, gb, gw or nw. Tones make all the difference in the meaning of Igbo words. You will hear and practices subtle differences in tone between identically written words. You will learn everyday words--words that you are likely to use over and over again. You will learn key verbs and phrases that will set you on your way to mastering the language.
