Igbo Survival Kit- The Basics!!

Igbo Survival Kit- The Basics!!

- in Survival Basics

My very own Igbo Survival Kit!!!

My name is Amarachi and I will be discussing different ways of speaking in Igbo!

I am not an expert in Igbo, I am learning the language myself! I am merely sharing parts of what I have learnt/am learning with you 🙂

I have devised an Igbo survival kit packed with basic Igbo phrases, designed to help you survive In Igboland.

The phrases used are as follows:

Olee otu imere
Ekele ndi enyi m
Ekele ndi enyi gi
Kedu kordi
Kedu ka i mere
O di m mma
A di m mma
Ahu di m mma
Ututu oma
I boola chi
I saala chi
Ka chi fo
Ko o bo
Abali oma
Kedu afa gi
Gini bu afa gi
Ah a m bu
Af a m bu
Ife gi amaka
Nyere m aka
Gini bu nsogbu
Chere e be
Soro m
Nwere nwanyo


A na m asu Igbo ntakiri, nwere nwanyo na-okwu!!!

I hope you find these phrases helpful!

  11. Omg! I am Ngwa too!! Do you come to the annual Ngwa convention? You would be a big help to the Igbo classes being taught. Im so desperately trying to learn Igbo, so I definitely subscribed to you! How long have you been speaking Igbo, and how did you learn?

  12. This is so great Amarachi! With UNESCO predicting the extinction of the Igbo language in the next 50 years, I have realized that by not knowing the language, I am only contributing to this. Hopefully your series can help me master Igbo once and for all 🙂
