It gives us quite an exhilarating feeling to place free online courses on all the Ethiopian Languages. These online courses have got several unique features to Speak to Peak all the Ethiopian Languages.
It is not a product of the mill like the other online courses available in the market. It is not based on the translation method that is usually followed in other online courses! The assumed sentences between first person and second person in dialogue form are constructed first in English and then they are translated ad-verbatim into other language. And the learner neither memorize those parrot words; nor he/she can visualize the same situation repeatedly in day-to day life.
Hence, we have endeavored to discover logical language learning formulas with stipulated rules, examples, exercises to express present, past, future, present continuous and past continuous actions as every individual might speak about these actions. These can be learned with ease and can be applied to several situations in an efficient manner.
We envision these online courses as a guide directed towards Non-Ethiopian Language speakers. We hope it will not go in vain in facilitating the self-learning aspirations of Non- Ethiopian Language speakers who wish to enrich their communication skills in all the Ethiopian Languages.
