Books for learning Jula (Dyula, Dioula)

In terms of books specifically for Jula, there are few that are currently in print or easily available.

That said, lingua franca Jula is 100% mutually intelligible with lingua franca Bambara (think British and American English or perhaps closer — here’s a write-up I did about their specific differences) so you can also easily use any print books designed Bambara.

Below are a few print and online texts that can help you learn Jula. For apps, dictionaries and other useful tools, you can also check out the Resources page.
