I just put out a new video for Manding learners on the An ka taa YouTube channel. Hard to imagine that there was literally not good video for language that is spoken by tens of millions and is one of the most important ones of the African continent.
Anyways, it covers how to greet in Bambara and Jula (“dioula” in French). Hope you like it! Let me know if there are other topics you’d like to see covered in the future
How to greet in Bambara and Dioula, the major Manding varieties of Mali, Burkina Faso and Côte d’Ivoire — as per a YouTube video that I just posted on An ka taa’s channel.
An ka taa is proud to host a mobile-friendly and searchable Dioula dictionary for English and French speakers.
Bambara and Jula can almost be understood as two labels for the same thing; think of how Spanish for instance is known as both español and castellano. At the same time, Bambara and Jula aren't the exact same, just like English in New York and London isn’t the same. What are the major differences in practical terms though?
The new episode of Na baro kè is live on YouTube and takes a look at what local people think about the local minibuses of Bamako, Mali.
