Loba Lingala! introduces the language of Kinshasa to English speakers through an easy,
approachable format designed to get people speaking as soon as they start learning.
Building upon a core of just 50 Lingala words, the book explains the grammar, vocabulary and other structures necessary to communicate in a variety of situations, allowing readers to learn at their own pace and according to their own interests.
This approach is complemented by spirited, original illustrations of daily life in the capital of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The book provides information about the language and the culture of the crazy, chaotic, vibrant and unpredictable city that is Kinshasa.
Loba Lingala! also includes an up-to-date English-Lingala/Lingala-English dictionary,
memorisation aids and verb tables for fast and easy reference.
