Breaking: Anambra man now teaches Igbo Language in Oxford University


The University of Oxford, a collegiate research university in Oxford, England, now teaches the Igbo Language.

This is the first time this oldest university in the world is teaching the language in its history.

According to a Facebook link , Emmanuel Ikechukwu Umeonyirioha, believed to be from Anambra State, would teach the language in the prestigious university.


It is official that I am the first official Igbo Language lecturer at the number one university in the world, the University of Oxford. Our induction happened today by Marion Sadoux, Head of Modern Language Programmes, University of Oxford Language Centre.

This became possible in account of the James Currey Society. This is the first time Igbo language will be taught at the university. History has been made.

I am so happy and grateful for this opportunity. I promise to make the Igbo language and culture known to the world.

First class starts next week Thursday, 3-4pm, on 12 Woodstock Road.
