3 Reasons Why You Are Not Speaking Igbo Yet

learning igbo

Learning Igbo language, like any other language has its challenges.

If we let them, a number of reasons can come up to try and derail us from the goal.


It’s a big one

‘I will start in 2018’

Well, 2018 is nearly gone

‘I will do it in the 2nd half of the year’

We are in the last quarter now

The best time to start learning and speaking Igbo is today

Doesn’t matter if it’s the 2nd, the 19th or the 1st of the month

Beat procrastination and just start!



The other culprit is ‘NOT PLANNING’

Nobody plans to fail

I want to succeed in Igbo coaching

You want to succeed in speaking Igbo

Well, a key factor that differentiates success from failure is planning

Writing daily, weekly and monthly goals makes it easier

It eliminates random learning

Eg: say my goal is to be able to discuss 12 topics in one year

Each month, I take one topic and divide it into 4 sections

Each week , I take a section and divide it into 5 or 6

So for 5-6 days every week, I have things to learn already mapped out

I can just go ahead, learn it and cross it off my to-do list

Of course, I will need to practise speaking what I’ve learnt again and again


And the last REASON: Doing It Alone

We are social beings

We rely on each other

We give and we take

In running Igbostudy

I have help

Family help

Friends help

In Courses and programs I am participating in, I get help

There’s only so much I can do myself

And same goes for you

Ask for help

Ask and you shall receive


There is a saying, ‘when you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get the results you’ve always gotten’


But you do want new results

And you are ready to do new things

To take an action you’ve not taken before

Which is why, I want to let you know ‘The Igbo Speakers Bootcamp‘ is open

In the bootcamp,

You get a template to write your goals

You get video lessons and pdf

You get live sessions to practise your speaking

You get accountability and support for times when it’s hard to go on

When you sign up by 4th October, you get nearly double the amount of live sessions

See you at the bootcamp.
