I was born and raised in Igbo land, in Nigeria, where I spent uninterrupted 27 years of my life and schooled up to university level. Growing up, I always had the desire to keep Igbo language alive and contribute to its development as much as I can. I have translated report and research articles for government and non-governmental agencies in Nigeria. Despite being formally educated in Igbo language, I design layman friendly lesson plans, materials and homework on each topic to be treated. I will empower you to know how to put Igbo words together and sound like native speakers on your own. I design lessons and homework based on your environment, interests, and learning capacity. Your questions are my guide.
