Igbo

Learn Igbo and embark on a journey through Nigeria’s Igboland. Hike the Udi hills that overlook the city of Enugu, catch an Atilogwu dance performance, or explore the Ngodo rock Cave in Abia State. With year-round festivals on the Nigerian calendar, there’s never a dull moment. Celebrate the harvest during the New Yam Festival and perform a traditional mmanwu (masquerade) alongside locals. A language rich in history, learning Igbo connects you to over 24 million speakers and one of the largest ethnic groups in Africa.
