Re: Learning Nyanja in Lusaka?
Mulli bwanji? (how are you? In Nyanja!)
Nyanja is the most widely spoken language in Lusaka, Bemba in the Copperbelt, Tonga/Nyanja in the Southern Province, Lozi in the Western Province etc, these are the main languages which are most useful to learn whilst in Zambia. Although of course in the major towns and cities everyone speaks English.
On arrival just ask around at the local schools and I am sure someone will be more than happy to given you lessons. If you were in Livingstone Indeco Community School offers private tuition so I am sure else where other schools offer it!
Nyanja is probably one of the easiest African languages to learn after Swahili, and once you grasp Nyanja it is easy to learn some of the other Zambian languages which have similar venacular make-ups.
Best of luck!
