This is a beginner’s class. Our Beginners Classes are classified into 2 groups.

Y1 Beginner Level 1

Campers are either absolute beginners, who have had no previous contact with the Yoruba Language or they are false beginners, who have already been exposed to the language in a passive way, in which they may understand some words but cannot respond.

Consider Beginners Level 1 class if your Camper   :

  • is 10 – 17 yrs old
  • cannot understand or speak Yoruba at all
  • knows some basic vocabularies, but cannot use them in sentences

Y2 Beginner Level 2

Campers understand basic phrases and instructions used in specific situations. He/she can interact in a very simple way and uses incomplete sentences, without real grammatical content.

 Consider Beginners Level 2 class if  your Camper  :

  • has attended 2 or more previous Yoruba for Kidz classes in the past or can do the following**:
    • can understand when spoken to in Yoruba but cannot respond or sustain communication
    • knows the Yoruba numbers from 1-10
    • can introduce themselves and ask other’s for their name
    • can do basic greeting  ( good morning, good afternoon ,etc)
    • Talk about hobbies ( I love to _____)
    • Ask some one what they want , or tell someone what they want ( I want to ____)
    • Can talk about their family ( Older sibling, younger sibling, mum, dad etc)

**Learners may not be perfect at these, but they should have some exposure to this.

**If you are not sure where you fit in any of these groups, please contact us.

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!
