This is the Introduction Lesson. Here we are trying to make it possible for every student to be able to speak Igbo by  using the first five(5)  Igbo Alphabets, A, B, Ch, D, E. There are 36 Igbo Alphabets; ten more than the English Alphabets.

By following our examples, any student should be able to substitute his/her own name, names of his/her own parents, siblings,  or anything that relates to him/her  in sentences with blank (-------). Each student should pay attention to examples used. If an example uses somebody's name, a student should substitute his or her own name, etc.

Note: To complete a meaningful sentence structure in Igbo, we borrowed the alphabet M and Nw from the Igbo Alphabets.  M is a personal pronoun for I and Me. Nw is for spelling  Nwa (Child)
