Welcome to Igbo911, pioneers in on line Multimedia Igbo language education for Ndi Igbo in Diasporas and students of Igbo as a second language.


Our mission is to provide Igbo language education via contemporary and interactive audio visual media. Through our dialectical lexicon, we are capturing key words and phrases from as many dialects as possible. Although Central Igbo was developed to serve as a universal dialect, contemporary Igbo speakers do not speak in any specific dialect. Depending on their place of birth, residence and aptitude; the average Igbo person speaks in a brand that is an amalgamation of several dialects. Igbo911 reflects such contemporary blend of dialect and we have chosen it as a default dialect for our resource at this time until we are able to collate the data in central Igbo.


The audio rendition of the Igbo text (where available) can be activated by clicking on the audio icon, the picture or on the Igbo text.


Audio Picture Dictionary (for beginners): One page is dedicated to each alphabet. Each page is interactive enabling users to hear the pronunciation of the applicable individual alphabet and there contextual use via six colourful objects. Following each page is a quiz that would enable you practice the words associated with each alphabet.

Dialectical Lexicon and Audio Translator  Imagine a world in which every single person on the planet is given free access to the sum of all knowledge of Igbo language and culture in every dialect from every community. This is the inspiration for our dialectical lexicon and audio translator. Our hope is that in the near future any one from any part of the world will be able to learn how to carry on a conversation in any Igbo language dialect of choice.
