Kiswaili ni luga ya Afrika Masariki. Maendeleo ya luga ii yamekuwa makubwa sana ata kuifanya iwe mojawapo ya luga maarufu duniani. Lica ya kuwa luga ya wananci wa Afrika Masariki, Kiswaili kinazungumzwa pia katika seemu kada za Afrika ya Kati.
Katika seemu mbalimbali za ulimwengu,watu wengi wameingiwa na msisimko wa kujifunza luga ii maarufu ya Afrika.
Kwa sababu ii “Waswaili” wenye uwezo wa kusaidia ufundisaji na ustawisaji wa Kiswaili nje ya eneo lao wanao wajibu mkubwa wa kutoa msaada uo.
Mmojawapo wa misaada muimu itakiwayo sasa ni vitabu vya Kiswaili vya kuwasaidia wageni wapendao kujifunza luga ii.

KISWAHILI MADE EASY
Ingawa viko vitabu vicace vilivyoandikwa kuusu somo ili, ukweli ni kwamba vingi kati ya ivyo avitoselezi wala kukidi aja ya ivi sasa.
Kitabu iki kilicoandikwa na Dr. Safari ni matokeo ya utafiti na majaribio ya muda mrefu. Majaribio ya kitabu iki aliyafanya na vikundi mbalimbali vya wageni aliokuwa anawafundisa Kiswaili. Majaribio aya ameyafanya na vikundi vya Wajerumani wakati alipokuwa Ujerumani na wageni kutoka nci zingine waliokuja kuitumikia Tanzania. Kutokana na utafiti na majaribio yake naweza kusema kuwa kitabu iki kimetungwa kwa kufuata misingi ya utaalamu wa luga.
Ingawa majaribio mengi yamefanywa kwa kutumia vikundi vya wageni, ii aina maana kuwa watu wengine awawezi kufaidika na yaliyomo katika kitabu iki. Ni matumaini yangu kuwa ata Watanzania na Waafrika wengine wenye ari ya kujifunza Kiswaili watanufaika na kazi ii. Mwiso, natoa pongezi kwa mwandisi kwa juudi yake ii na namwombea eri na ufanisi zaidi katika ujenzi, ustawisaji na uenezaji wa luga ii ya Kiswaili. G.A. Mina Aliyekuwa Mkurugenzi wa Taasisi ya Ucunguzi wa Kiswaili Cuo Kikuu ca Dar Es Salaam
INTRODUCTION
Africa as more languages tan any oter continent. Swaili is one of tese languages. It belongs to a group called “Bantu”.One of te caracteristics of te Bantu languages is lack of articles and gender (masculine, feminine, neuter). he nouns in tese tongues are grouped into “classes” by means of teir nominal prefixes, e.g.m,wa, ki,andvi,as will become clearer in te course of tis study. he name “Swaili” is derived from te Arabic wordsawael, wic means “coasts”. Swaili is terefore te language of te people of te coast of East Africa. Altoug it contains a number of loan words, mostly from Arabic, Swaili is essentially an African language. In te nineteent century, Bisop Steere of Zanzibar regarded Swaili as a key to te understanding of te culture of East Africa.
