This is the best resource for learning Lingala i've come across and it's free to download! There is a workbook in pdf form and several downloadable mp3 files to go with it.

Thanx Mwana Nsalu, will dig into it and see what's there. I must say my lingala has improved, I use this online dictionary above almost every hour,whatever  new words I hear on songs or interviews I translate and it's working, preparing myself for a trip to Congo,want to go and chill out one weekend when am in Zambia sometime this year.

re: your trip, nice! i hope someday in the future to make that trip as well. with having family there tho can't go empty handed. gotta make sure i'm good to go so to speak lol

yes i use the dictionary you linked the most. it is pretty extensive, i love it.

the link i posted is especially great for getting ones conversational skills and pronunciation/annunciation better if you don't really have people to speak lingala with. i haven't used it as much as i would like (haven't had the time) but its a really great tool.

Hi Dj SLY,
This is special request:What about Lingala for English speakers in PDF! I will be grateful if you can help me on that as I have passion for foreign languages and Lingala is one of  them.After all,it will give me better understanding of Congolese Music.
