IGBO LANGUAGE CENTER: INTRODUCTION TO THE IGBO LANGUAGE

INTRODUCTION TO THE IGBO LANGUAGE

by

(nye ńkụzị)



Welcome to gbo World (Ụwa Ńdi gbo)! We will begin our study of the language with a brief introduction.

 

As you probably know already, gbo is one of the major African languages. Although it is spoken predominantly in Biafra (former Eastern Nigeria), it is widely spoken in almost all the countries of this world by the gbo Diaspora. If you are an gbo, it is important that you learn to speak, read, and write gbo because the language of a people is their most important heritage on which the survival of their culture and their continued existence on earth as a people largely depend. If you are a foreigner (a tourist, a friend of the gbo Nation, etc.), we thank you sincerely for your interest in our language, our culture, and our people. A knowledge of the gbo Language will, amongst other things, give you the key to the heart of the gbo people (Ńdị gbo). In fact, it will enable you to understand why the Igbos are unique in Africa, why they are hated and admired by their erstwhile colonial masters and detractors, and, above all, why they are wanted and unwanted in the Nigeria they call their country. That said, let us begin our study of the language with a look at the writing or orthographic system.
