I took it upon myself to develop a Chitumbuka language resource that could be provided to volunteers and trainees to support their language education and be a reference for them later.
As a volunteer in training, I was taught Chitumbuka while living in central Malawi where they spoke Chichewa, the national language, instead. The materials we were taught with used modified Chichewa, rather than true Chitumbuka. Our most reliable resource for accurate Chitumbuka was a dated dictionary, written in the fifties by a priest.
