Umenyioha To Start Teaching Igbo At Oxford University!

“Announcing this on a Facebook post, Emmanuel Ikechukwu Umeonyirioha who is the first lecturer to teach Igbo language in the world-famous educational institution promised to bring Igbo language and culture to a global limelight.

According to Umeonyirioha, first Igbo class in the institution will start next week Thursday, 3-4pm.

This will help promote Igbo language, which UNESCO has said is one of the endangered languages.

Oford University is very influential when it comes to languages. The Oxford English Dictionary (OED) widely recognised as the principal historical dictionary of the English language, published by Oxford University Press (OUP) recently recognised some words such as ‘Ember months’ and ‘next tomorrow’ as ‘Nigerian English’.
