is the Amharic Language Multimedia Series?
It is a PC based computer
program that will teach you the Amharic language from start to finish.
There are ten lessons distributed over four packages (Amharic 101, Amharic
102, Amharic 103, and Amharic 104), which are designed in a way that
makes the learning process simple, and of course fun. As an added feature,
we have included some facts, and history you should know about this
ancient country of wonders. To all those that are planing to visit Ethiopia
soon....we hope that this will make your stay more enjoyable, and most
of all, free you from translators and guides
so that you can explore
the country on your own. And we all know what it feels like to be self-reliant
and all the adventure that comes with it when visiting a country full
of wonders. Visit our Demo site for

makes this program different from other Amharic tutorial programs?
- For starters, it is the
only multimedia that is designed to teach the Amharic language from
the very basics to a complex level.
- It uses short cuts that
reduce the amount of memorization needed drastically. These short cuts
or rules are developed by the authors and are not available anywhere
- It uses colorful graphics,
video clips, and sounds that simplifies otherwise complex ideas
and most of all make the learning process fun and easy!
- Almost all areas have a
help section with detailed information on what you need to do
making it easy for people of all ages to use the program.
- There are dozens of quiz
questions on different topics
and all have the answers available
at your fingertips.
- There is even a section
called "quick fix" for people that want to learn few important
phrases right away.

- Ethiopians that were born
outside of Ethiopia and do not speak Amharic
- Business people that have
interest in Ethiopia or deal with Ethiopians
- Scholars and Historians
- Or anyone of any age group
who understands English well enough to read this!
Information about the Program.
is designed by a new generation of Ethiopians that utilized sound and
pictures to explain complex ideas. Almost all material that is on the
market today uses the old traditional method of memorization. If you
have any previous attempt to learn a second language, then you very
well know that it is easy to get frustrated, discourages, and finally
drop the whole thing using such methods.
So before the Amharic series were developed, we spent a great deal of
time looking for "short cuts". Short cuts are patterns or
trends that are found in different areas of the Amharic language which
are used to develop rules. These rules enabled us to drop a large portion
of memorization and focus on the important stuff.
We then came up with the basic amount of material that a person should
know to be able to speak, read, and write in Amharic. Having these two
major points in mind, we developed the Amharic Language Multimedia Series.
