"This game is very informative and educational. The practice games definitely help with reading and understanding the Yoruba language" - customer.

"This is a very nice and innovative way of teaching people their native language. This app is not just for kids. For someone who can't speak any native language, this has helped me to a significant degree. Looking forward to learning other languages. Well done!!" - Customer

"Brilliantly awesome tool for getting the kids to learn Yoruba." - Customer

"It sparks a yearning for learning new words and interests. My daughter introduced the app to her older cousin who is Jamaican and she also uses Yoruba words learnt to replace English where possible and impressed her grandad by reading and pronouncing the words correctly at age 7." - Customer

Darnell Clayton ,

A Yoruba app made for me!!!

After discovering via DNA test (Thanks African Ancestry!!!!!) that I hail from the Yoruba tribe I have been trying to learn the language. I have purchased paper back & ebooks (which are ok), but I was seeking an interactive & fun way to learn Yoruba before visiting Yorubaland in Nigeria next year!

Now it looks like this app will help accelerate my learning via fun interactive games & songs! Yay!

Note: I am surprised the prices are this affordable as I paid $50 for one Yoruba book (& much more for other books & apps elsewhere).

Developer Response ,

Thank you

Where has this App been hiding?

By far the best I’ve seen so far. It’s actual Yoruba, not the Anglicized version of Yoruba that I’ve encountered different places...when I saw Fitila...instead of Lampu, I knew this was the app for me and my son. The voices are forcefully employed in the pronunciations, which my 3 year old responds to enthusiastically. (It might be jarring to western ears)

I look forward to updates.

Learned with grandma

I picked this up to learn More Yoruba. My grandma, who is fluent loved the app and we would work on gaining the achievements together.

The app is interactive, and the UI is done well.

Only thing I wish is that there were more lessons to learn in the app

Developer Response ,

Thank you. We have more lessons in Yoruba102 (GeniiGames App)
