We are hosting the second edition of the African Languages Conference (AFLC2023) to mark African Languages Week (January 24-30) and promote the use and learning of African Indigenous languages.
Last year, the African Languages Conference 2022 was organized by Avishta Seeras of The Lingua-Cultura Experience and Ady Namaran Coulibaly of Bolingo Consult. The conference included 17 sessions which were delivered in over a dozen African indigenous languages by 26 speakers from 13 different nations. The sessions took place in two communities on Clubhouse, the Lingua-Cultura Experience and Africa Day. It was four days of connecting with language professionals, advocates and enthusiasts, and sharing and learning about African languages. The event gathered over 750 attendees.
