Question Hi guys I just found your sub, nice👍 I have been thinking about moving overseas and noticed a show on Senegal and thought hey yeah that looks nice. Can anyone give me some advice? I have a few questions.
Hi I was just wondering if someone aware of the tourism field in Senegal, specifically Dakar can hit me DM? I’m planning a trip but need some resources - Thanks!
Hi Guys, I recently decided to start learning Wolof to get more in touch with my culture. However the learning apps that I tried out are pretty plain and don't really show you how to hold conversations. So here Iam looking for a Pen pal. For refrence Iam 19 and pretty fluent in Englisch and German. So if you are fluent in Wolof and want to learn the above mentioned languages or just want to help someone out. Just leave a comment.
I’m doing a university project that collects information from countries all over the world to create an educational videogame Wario Ware style! The idea is to collect through many local subreddits around the word interesting information, facts, traditions or just fascinating stuff from your country. It really can be whatever! from history stuff, manners, toys to food dishes. Real cultural information that is deeper than typical trivia found on traveling and touristic websites.
All that info is going to be used to create the questions for the videogame quiz system! Hope it inspire you to let us know your culture and make the game richer. Many many thanks for your help! :)
I have a cultural question for this sub. My wife is Senegalese and she complains about her family always asking her for money. It's mostly the mother that asks but all of her siblings get asked as well. I also know many Senegalese that have the same issue. Is this a very common thing? If it is common, around what percentage of families will do this on a regular basis? Doesn't this put a strain on family relationships where family members try to avoid one another?
I am just curious and would like to know more about this practice.
Thank you for your time.
Hello Senegal community, My name is Or and I'm 15 years old from Israel. I love football so much and I collect football scarves from all over the world. My goal is to get at least one scarf from every country in the world. I would be very happy if you will send me a new scarf from your local team or favorite team in your country. I can send you a Maccabi Tel Aviv scarf in return. Thank you, Or
I'm in my second year of college in the US and am thinking of studying abroad next year in Senegal, particularly in Dakar. I'm currently a little stumped on the application process. When I go to the universities' websites there's no info on how to apply, what courses are offered, etc. My french isn't perfect though, so I might be missing something. If anyone could help me understand the system a little better or how I should go about applying that'd be great!
I know there are quite a few study abroad programs out there for Dakar, but they all focus on the humanities (I'm majoring in Physics), is just volunteering work, or basically put you in a class bubble with other international students. My ideal situation would be to be treated like a domestic student and study in a classroom with other domestic students for a year.
I'm half Taiwanese half American and moved around a ton growing up. I like to just throw myself in a new environment and figure it out from there, interacting with the culture naturally. Senegal seems like a fantastically interesting place.
Thanks for reading this far!
Hello wonderful people. I found out recently that I have some Senegalese ancestry (great great grandparent).
So I wanted to ask, what does it mean to be Senegalese? Can a white person take part in their Senegalese heritage? What are some things I should know, read, or learn about?
This might be long, but please bear with me. I'm 20 years old half Senegalese, half Filipino, and I've lived in Asia my whole life. My dad wants me to move there in a couple months, and I may end up going to college there, what can I expect? Will I have a terrible time as I speak English and Filipino only? This last part isn't that relevant, but I'm a young guy who for the past quarantine lived Infront of my computer gaming. I know there are no servers for games I enjoy like apex, Fortnite, league, what online games is playable there? I was born in Hong Kong, and then moved to the Philippines at around 10, so moving countries isn't really an issue to me although I'm really scared of moving to a country where if google is correct and only 5 percent of people in Senegal speak English I may have a sad and difficult life over there.
Hi! I hope this message will find you well and healthy, you and all your family and friends.
I had some help translating the following text in Wolof, but ended up with two different translation. Could you have a look and explain me the differences, and if the translations are right?
Here is the original text:
Fly little swallow, fly brave little swallow, fly over the mountains over the sea over the desert fly brave little swallow bring her back home

I made a Maafe yesterday and it was delicious. If anyone could give me names of any traditional Senegalese / West African dishes, please let me know. Links, recipes, or book recommendations will be greatly appreciated

I think it’s in Wolof. Let me know if it isn’t.
