Campers learn the Yoruba Language via an Online Video Webinar with Live instructions through music, role play, and much more fun activities. We learn in themes so that conversations can be contextualized.
Campers have an opportunity to meet and practice freely with other campers and instructors. This is a fun way to get them to express themselves. NO JUDGMENT at the community square!
