About the Company

Nkenne is a community based African language learning platform for Africans and the African diaspora. The solution focuses on African cultural content, language lessons and tonal specifications with the aim of building a community of African language learners.

Learning African languages poses several challenges due to the continent's linguistic diversity and historical factors. Limited availability of standardised learning materials and qualified instructors further hampers the learning process. Also, some African languages have complex grammar structures and unique phonetic systems, making them more challenging for learners accustomed to other language families. Nkenne is an online platform with innovative African language learning capacities, as well as offers African multi-language language translations database.
