2Seeds Swahili hails from an older version of the internet: one where a public charity would create a Swahili language course on a free WordPress.com blog for their Project Coordinators. Yet while dated, the content is good.
Each blog post takes a separate grammatical function or topic, with the ambitious aim of taking you from phonetics and greetings to mastering the subjunctive and imperative in just 12 posts. As you might expect, these posts don’t make for quick or light reading: they are long and full of tables, embedded audio recordings, thorough grammatical explanations, worksheets, and answer sheets.
We wouldn’t recommend using 2Seeds Swahili alone or instead of a more modern course. It’s highly useful but intense. Instead, we would suggest using it alongside a course like SwahiliPod101 (review) or Mango Languages (review), or to supplement vocabulary apps such as Drops (review) and YouTube channels like Swahili Dar Language School (review).
The current rating is our best estimate. We haven’t had the opportunity yet to more thoroughly evaluate this resource, as we do for our full reviews.
