The Guide on Igbo Culture and Language
Insights in Igbo Culture and Language
This Igbo website provides simple and easy-to-read insights in Igbo language and Igbo culture. Not only does the guide describe the wide variety of the traditions in this part of Nigeria, attention is also paid to normal day-to-day facets of life in the town and villages. The site contains a complete guide on Igbo language, highlighted in sample conversations including native audio clips, includes an Igbo English dictionary and explains the basic Igbo grammar structure.
With numerous visits to Igbo villages and communities, I was able to experience first-hand the customs, culture and language in this part of Igboland. It provided me unforgettable memories of the various traditions, colourful masquerades, dances and festivals, not to mention the breath-taking panoramic views from the hills and lowlands spreading from north to south, east to west, all captured in the various culture, language and photo sections in this site.
Initially published as the book "Nnöö - Welcome to Enugu" and converted to this website, www.igboguide.org has become the essential guide for development workers, volunteers, teachers, national youth service corpers, ex-pats, tourists and just anyone who wants to learn and enjoy Igboland customs, traditions and language.
