    Great website! I grew up in Mozambique but never learnt the language. As I plan on moving back I am eager to get into it and found all this useful information at my disposal directly on your website, so thank you so much! I really appreciate your work and I am sure I will be able to learn quickly thanks to you!

    Cheers for now,

    Good evening! I live in Spain. 15 yeras ago I was adopted in Maputo, Mozambique, where I was born. Since I was only 4 years old, I did not learned to speak changana.
    Thanks to this website I’m learning this language.
    So thanks a lot!

    Wow, I´m just so surprised and happy that I found your website. I lived one year in Mozambique and first I had to learn Portuguese. Later on I also tried to learn Changana but I had a hard time learning with other people because when I started asking “What means….in Changana/Portuguese” they often couldn´t really explain that well or lost themselves in stories 🙂
    So thanks a lot for this site!

      Great news, Ines! Very happy to hear you like the site. I know what you mean, I have also run into the same problem. I guess part of the reason is that local languages are not taught in school in Mozambique. While many Mozambicans speak their local language they have never learned it properly and sometimes struggle when it comes to grammar and explaining. They will always love seeing foreigners interested in their language though.

      Changana has its name from Soshangane, a warrior sent out by the Zulu King Shaka to conquer the Tsonga people in the area of present-day Mozambique.
