About the instructor
I enjoyed watching videos and seeing the instructor pronounce difficult words. I also liked that there are continuous updates in the course. A sound chart and listening exercises were my fav points. I recommend this course!
I liked the way the instructor took forward the course. Every Kinyarwanda word is pronounced clearly and with multiple repetitions which I found helpful as I struggled with few sounds like "c" which sounds more like "cha" ! I also liked that videos demonstrate vocabularies with clear patterns & pictures wherever necessary.
This course was great! Very intuitive and easy to use. The videos are helpful as well as the audio recordings that can be played to hear the word pronounced quickly or slowly. I would recommend this course strongly to beginners especially.
