I’m an Igbo woman (London-born, Enugu-raised, now living in London, UK) with a passion for sharing my love for Igbo language, history and culture!
I was looking for interesting books and materials for my children to use in learning Igbo language and when I couldn't find any, I decided to create them myself.
Most Igbo books I found in Igboland were designed for people who already know how to speak Igbo, not for those who are learning Igbo as a second or additional language.
I started Learn Igbo Now to create materials and support on how to learn Igbo language.
My motivation for starting Learn Igbo Now is fueled by the desire that my children and anyone can learn Igbo anywhere they are, with learning materials that they can easily relate to. Somehow, LIN then took on a life of its own.
Learn Igbo Now has helped a lot of people reconnect with their Igbo heritage and confidently start learning and speaking Igbo – not to mention teaching thousands of Igbo learners through my YouTube lessons.
If you love Igboland, Nigeria and Igbo life, I’m here to guide you, answering questions you wouldn’t dare ask about anything and everything Igbo, so join me for discovery, learning and fun.
Ya gazie !
