While driving through the streets of Rwanda, or Kigali in particular, it is possible that you may unfortunately get into a traffic crash. In this article, you will learn basic Kinyarwanda phrases that you can use to resolve conflicts, ask for help and call the police. It is very important that you communicate what happened to the authorities and specify the help you need.

You will learn by cards that you can flip upon a click or a tap, and a vocabulary quiz at the end. By enrolling in the full course, you will get two more exercises on this topic, and you will also be able to track your progress with points and rewards.
