Holiday Gift Guide for Igbo Language Learners

The holidays are coming up, and it’s easy to let your Igbo studies slip while you are busy preparing to spend time with family and friends.

But it doesn’t have to be that way. You can find time to practice your Igbo while relaxing during your upcoming holiday vacation.

One way is to invest in some new Igbo learning material and inspiring Igbo products to get you in the mood to study.
