Translation Is Needed - Thanks :) by German1234(f): 12:50pm On Apr 30, 2010
I will never learn igbo, BUT, what does this mean?

It is something my BF wrote to another girl - should I be scared?:

"Ina'a ederem igbo ina'amagi. Ebe giwa si Germany emechaa giwa agbawmu onye na akuzirigiya ohh"

Last translation I need in this life - I promise smiley smiley

"Ina'a ederem igbo ina'amagi. Ebe giwa si Germany emechaa giwa agbawmu onye na akuzirigiya ohh"

He is basically saying that you are writing him in Igbo language that you do not understand, that who is teaching you Igbo language, that u got some explanations to do later.

But why is there a "germany" in this sentence? Is it possible to get a more precise translation?

Thank anyway smiley smiley

German, its best if you put all your enquiries in one thread so you wont have to open many threads as the igbo lesson continues

Thanks for all your help shocked) I managed to give him the explanation that I heard HIM say it once, And that I catch on easily, Dont know if he bought it, I think its so interesting to learn new languages. And I have searched a little bit online about the igbo language and something is very strange to me, and that is that there are sooo many different ways of saying the same thing - it is even spelled differently. Is there, like in german, one official way of spelling or do you just spell it the way it is pronounced?

Hey German,
This is quite funny,my man who is also Igbo asked me the same thing when i started learning to speak and write Igbo and sent him little sms'es,
His words were ''Who is this nigerian man that is teaching you Igbo?'', why cant it be a woman or the internet?
But i wouldnt dare say that to him,i introduced him to nairaland instead, now he is teaching me a bit.
But i feel you. though girl,
