For a while now (about a year and a half), I have been thinking about picking up a third language. For the past year, I have narrowed it down with Swahili being always on top of the list. Yesterday, I decided to make Kaswahili (what Swahili is called in Swahili...like español) my 3rd language.
Jack helped me make the decision. He speaks at the very least: English, Spanish, Swahili, and Mandarin. He said that Swahili is relatively easy to learn if you know Spanish. Today, Mkunde gave me a "teach youself Swahili" book. It's not a phrase book, but more like an introductory text. Lots of examples. I read the intro tonight. Rock.
