Learn African LanguageS!

We’ve partnered up with SANKOFA SPRACHSCHULE! 

The first school in Germany where African instructors teach African languages live.

This is an authentic place for you to learn Swahili, Twi, Lingala and many more languages spoken on the African continent. 

In case you’re not based in Germany, don’t worry many classes are held online. Sankofa offers classes for different age groups too. So in case you want to strengthen your children’s language skill they can feel comfortable in a small group with kids of similar age. 

What’s more, we’re launching together a specific course for travelers. This way you can learn the basics that will prepare you for your trip. 

Age groups

Sankofa offers classes for kids and adults.


Classes can be taken online and offline in Berlin.

About the Classes

Suitable study groups

Sankofa will place you in the right study group based on your age and classification level. Check out their website to see all languages that are currently being offered.


You can choose whether you want to learn the language in German or English. What’s more, all languages can be learned in the comfort of your own home.

Mission Statement

Unfortunately, a large part of the African Diaspora around the world has not had the chance to get to know their homeland growing up. In many cases it was neglected to convey the native language, history and culture to them.
We can not only communicate with language. It is also part of our identity and is always linked to certain cultures and ways of life. When language is lost, culture is irrevocably destroyed.
Sankofa is an old West African symbol and means something like “back to your roots” (to find what was lost). Sankofa Sprachschule wants to help make up for what has been missed and has therefore been making different African languages available online and on site at different language levels since 2018.
It is our aim to convey the language, culture and history to everyone who is interested.
