First, to learn Igbo, you simply just have to study Igbo! It’s best to take initiative and learn on your own at first. Can’t find study materials to help you learn Igbo independently? Then start by studying my free Beginner Igbo lessons here – which include bite sized lessons you can learn on the go like pronunciation, vocabulary, grammar, and sentences. Then review the Ultimate Igbo Learning Resources Library for more help.
Next, find a tutor in my Igbo Language Tutors Directory to get personalized attention and instant feedback on your speaking, listening, writing, and reading skills. You can meet with them at a time that works for your busy schedule. They are also a great resource to have when you are struggling with understanding anything related to the Igbo language. Write down any questions you have during your self-study sessions and bring it up to your tutor. Still not convinced you need a tutor? Check out how hiring an Igbo tutor has helped me here.
Finally, get an accountability partner that will remind you to work on your Igbo language goals. Can’t find one? Then enroll in my Igbo Accountability E-Mail Series, where I’ll be emailing you monthly to check on your progress. You will also need to find a community of other Igbo language learners to practice your Igbo with in between your study sessions and to support you on your Igbo language learning journey. Don’t know where to look? Then click here to join my Igbo Study Group for Dedicated Adult Learners. It includes assigned accountability partners, weekly check-ins, monthly challenges, goal tracking, and a private community to practice your Igbo.
