You can learn Lingala in just 9 easy steps.

You can go from beginner to fluent in Lingala in a short time and our nine-step Lingala learning guide will show you how. We'll be talking about Lingala greetings, nouns, adjectives and verbs. The guide provides an overview of each step in the progression of skills needed to learn to speak, read and understand Lingala.

Lingala learning guide : Step 1

There are dozens of greetings that you can learn in Lingala. Imagine, however, just how much effort it would take to learn them all. And learning all of them would also take a lot of time. It would be far better to focus on just three Lingala greetings to get started. For example, learn Losako, Tikala malamu and Tokomonono na nsíma (hello, good-bye, see you later). Learn these three Lingala greetings Losako, Tikala malamu and Tokomonono na nsíma by heart, learn to say them properly and then move on to Step 2 (Lingala pronouns).
