Learning African languages has a new addition to it with the public release of the Genii Games app for Android and iOS. Its release comes with a dedicated website containing information on available modules within the app. For some time, we had been working and sharing updates with you on the Genii Games App. For a bit of background, this African language learning app was necessitated by a need to converge all related apps from Genii Games into one single platform. That way, users have only to download, learn and track their progress from a single app.
