This course contains a lot of topics. I recommend it to people with a need of learning a more in-depth grammar of Kinyarwanda. Each word/sentence is pronounced separately so it well suits intermediate learners!

By far, I think this is the first online platform where I have been able to find Kinyarwanda materials with Audios in such a quantity. Well done!
