ABOUT THE IGBOS
The Igbo language is native to the Igbo people of Nigeria. They are culturally proud people who can be found all over Africa and the Diaspora, in countries like,Canada, Great Britain, Germany, the USA, China, Japan, and many other countries around the world.
Ever since history began, the Igbos established themselves as an industrious set of special people. They are highly enterprising, resourceful, creative and potential survivors of the fittest in any land they live.
WHERE ARE THE IGBOS FOUND?
The Igbos are the second largest group of people living in southern region of Nigeria. The Igbos are majorly found in Abia, Anambra, Ebonyi, Enugu and Imo States of Nigeria. There are also a few number of Igbo in Delta, Bayelsa and Rivers states.
ABOUT THE IGBO LANGUAGE
Before I tell you anything about the Igbo Language, I will show you how to pronounce it.
Well, IGBO is pronounced as in ee-boh, /iːboʊ/. Your lips should be spread a little wide when pronouncing the “I” (ee) sound and should form a circle when saying the “gbo” (boh) sound.
Great! You just said your first Igbo word.
Igbo is one of the three official native languages of Nigeria. That it to say that out of 520 languages, Igbo is among the top three languages spoken in Nigeria, the Giant of Africa.
Igbo is also spoken in Equatorial Guinea, Cameroon, Haiti, Barbados, Belize, Trinidad and Tobago.
This a quick disclaimer that Igbo Language is not hard to learn. With the right environment, constant practice and right tutor like me, learning Igbo Language is possible.
WHY LEARN IGBO?
- Igbo is natively spoken in Igboland although a good percentage of its original speakers are spread abroad.
- Moreover, It is the least commonly spoken language among the three major Nigerian languages.
- Furthermore, reading and writing in Igbo is not very widespread. Some, if not majority of the Igbos are unable to speak Igbo language. Only a handful can speak VERY FLUENTLY.
- In addition, the first indigenous university in Africa is also Igbo contribution to the world of civilization. The Igbos from time past are participating in the global development, hence studying Igbo will surely be an advantage to the Globalization process.
- Finally, Igbo speakers have spread across different world’s societies. Their population is also on the increase through childbirth and marriage. Therefore, the number of a heritage learners who needs to be taught Igbo language is on the rise.
