Salam alaikum! Na nga def? Yangi ci jamm?

No tudu? Fo deuk? Ana sa wa kër?

Ndax am nga ay doom?

Danga sonnu. Danga warra nelaw legi.

'Wolof101 has been my primary resource in preparing to spend two years in Senegal. The lessons are intuitive, and the videos help learners correctly pronounce the content. The Peace Corps asks invited volunteers to study Wolof before arriving at training, but does not provide much content to learn from. Wolof101 is a great supplement to the content that the Peace Corps provides, and gives student a foundational understanding of Wolof, instead of just memorizing phrases.'
