Thanks for watching my video about the history of Zambia. While I didn’t cover the whole history of the country I hope this gives people some insight into how Zambia became a nation and the people that make Zambia special!
I have been really curious to learn more about the modern history of Zambia but that is certainly up for debate since that is less than 20 years ago.

Thank you for tuning in to watch this episode on how to speak Nyanja. I grew up in Zambia and have a love for the language.If you want to follow along make sure to pick up a copy of the Town Nyanja – https://www.amazon.com/Town-Nyanja-learners-emerging-national/dp/1300756004
The first practical guide to Nyanja language as it’s actually spoken in modern, urban Zambia. For too long, visitors to the Zambian capital Lusaka have arrived with phrasebooks and dictionaries of traditional Nyanja, the kind spoken in Malawi and Eastern Province, only to find themselves laughed at or misunderstood. Zambians living in town today don’t speak that kind of Nyanja. Their language has evolved. This Nyanja isn’t ‘pure’, it isn’t standardised, and it’s only just beginning to be written down. But if you want to actually communicate with the people of Lusaka in their own language – on the street, on the bus, in the market or elsewhere – this is the Nyanja you need. The book includes an introduction to Nyanja sounds and grammar, over 300 useful everyday words and phrases, and A-Z Nyanja-English and English-Nyanja vocabulary.
