FSI Languages Courses


Igbo is based on the speech of two members of the Ezinehite group of Igbos in the Central Owerri Province between the towns of Owerri and Umuahia, Eastern Nigeria. The essential phonological and grammatical structure of Igbo is presented within a small vocabulary.

The Igbo Basic Course consists of four parts: tone drills; units 1-24 covering dialogues, notes, and drills; units 25-30 covering dialogues and short narratives; and vocabulary. The dialogues are presented in four columns headed pronunciation, structure, spelling and English.
