Secret Agent: Swahili

Play and Learn

Learn Swahili with a game from the International Language School for Secret Agents!

The following transcript is TOP SECRET

Welcome, Agent.

Let me welcome you to the top secret language school for international agents. We train the best and brightest here. We’re glad you made it.

You are here because we need you to learn Swahili. We need you to be able to read, listen, and translate it. When you are in the field, Swahili needs to be second nature to you. Don’t let us down.

This school is tough, and not everyone makes it through, but we’ll help you as much as we can. We’ve trained agents with far less talent than you in learning Swahili.

We’ve laid out some challenges for you at this school to help you learn.

You will be presented with 12 categories focusing on different areas of the language– ranging from numbers to phrases. Each category has 10 levels that you should master.

You learn Swahili on the shooting range. Each Swahili word rises in your sites, and you must shoot each word before it gets away. Let too many get away and you fail the level. Shoot them all, and you unlock the next level.

You’ll start off simple by learning numbers in Swahili. The first level is easy– you have a 50/50 chance of getting each word right. But, later levels are harder. Some levels have no sound– so you have to learn to read the words. Other levels have no text– so you have to learn to listen. Be prepared to repeat the levels. But don’t worry, young agent, as you get better on the shooting range, you will get better with Swahili.

Later, when you are in the field meeting with fellow agents, we want you to remember all the Swahili words you’ve learned here. Keep working at them until you become proficient. Swahili should be like a native language for you.

Good luck.

You did not get this from us.

Also check out our other games to learn Hindi, Arabic, Cantonese, Russian, Swahili, Korean, Spanish, Portuguese, Mandarin, Thai, and Vietnamese.

If you purchased Swahili Bubble Bath, the same vocabulary is used in Secret Agent: Swahili, so you will find it very similar (but with a spy theme).

Just some of our reviews

Fun Swahili Vocab. Review
Great for reviewing vocabulary, fun, engaging and helps learn you learn Swahili. I would recommend for use with a boring text book. Works well for review and expanding your vocab, but I would not use it on its own to learn kiswahili. I would like to see more sound options to control background, sound effects, and language separately. I would like more than one person reading the words, male/female, Kenyan/ Tanzanian, I would like to get used to hearing diffident accents, and it just makes it more engaging. I like that it gives a little back story, how developers think it is make a game with no back-story is beyond me. This game gives a fun little mission brief/ secret memo thing, and it is the details that really make an app great. I think the use of Kiswahili and Swahili makes the game seem classier. This app is a super fun way to review and practice Kiswahili!
