It also highlights the importance of multilingualism. This year, UNESCO’s aim was to raise awareness and to promote access to indigenous languages. To celebrate this International Year of Indigenous Languages, Swahili students at SOAS met Salim Kikeke from the BBC and talked about their reasons for studying Swahili.

Swahili, a popular language choice at SOAS, plays an important role in changing the way that many of the students see the world.
