pretty good

by Albatross on Apr 19, 2007

Heavy going, some of the time, and quite often words are used in exercises or examples before they have appeared in vocabularies. The coverage is systematic and thorough - e.g. a list of all the inflective adjectives is given at one point. I recommend the book for someone who already knows some Swahili. For the complete novice Steere's Swahili Exercises is probably better. Ashton covers the verb well, and intersperses stuff about nouns, and for a grammar of Swahili that is the right approach. Be warned: the language is not easy for a native English speaker, vocabulary as well as grammar being strange to us.
