History


In 2015, Khady Ndoye created LaPolyglotte blog where she shared her experience and passion for African languages. Her initiative comes from her personal experience and from the many studies that enabled her to learn several African languages including Wolof and Swahili. The blog brings a contemporary view of learning tools and emerges preconceived ideas that convert African languages to exclusively oral transmission.
From now on, the site is a benchmark in terms of offering content adapted to new technologies and a broad showcase of the African cultural diversity of today, between linking tradition and modernity.
LaPolyglotte through African languages, reveals History, the Cultures of the cradle of humanity.
