Easy Igbo is an educational tech program created to assist those desirous of learning the beautiful Igbo language. Spoken by over well over 20 million people, Igbo is a language of many MANY dialects, however our lessons here will primarily focus on the most common dialect, Central Igbo. With our mission being to promote and preserve language spoken by those within the African diaspora, we hope you decide to start your own journey with us today. Through collaboration with many talented educators, linguists, tutors, and everyday native speakers, our interactive learning environment will provide tools for all.
About the Founder
Ndeewo! My name is Jeremiah Chika Ike, and I am the founder of Easy Igbo. A first generation Nigerian-American born to proud Igbo parents, I unfortunately was never taught my great Igbo language growing up, however my curiosity and desire always existed. With the influence of a colleague, I made the conscious decision as an adult to do what I could to understand the language, yet from the outset of my quest I quickly realized the severe lack of online educational resources dedicated to Igbo. Something had to be done, and this is it! I hope you enjoy my efforts, and welcome any and all suggestions.
