Daariz is the free, fun and easy-to-use app that helps you learn to read and write in the Somali language. It’s perfect for you whether you’re just starting out or whether you already have a little knowledge but want to progress quickly.

Learn Somali for school, college, work and family or just because you want new opportunities for yourself!

To kickstart your Somail today, simply install Daariz and get access to hundreds of enjoyable lessons, tests, and activities, as well as a library of engrossing short texts and stories - and, because you won’t even need access to the internet, you can learn anywhere!

We think learning should be fun, so as you learn you’ll earn virtual camels as a reward for completing units of study, topic modules, activities, and text passages. Compete with your friends to see who can win the most camels!

You’ll also win badges for using the app everyday, because winning is motivating! Motivation helps you create a great learning habit. And you’ll also earn badges for achieving important milestones in your learning journey.

With Daariz you get two free courses: Somali 1 and Somali 2.

Somali 1 is for you if you can speak Somali and want a fun way to get started reading and writing. Start with Somali 1 to quickly learn the basics so that you’ll be able to read and understand simple words and short sentences.

Somali 2 is for you if you already have some knowledge of Somali, but it’s also perfect if you’ve completed Somali 1 and want to progress even further. Somali 2 will help you learn additional Somali words, and improve your reading speed and comprehension with lots of reading practice.


Somali 1 includes these fundamental topics:

●The alphabet (both lowercase and uppercase)
●Letter sounds
●Letter combinations
●Simple words
●Short sentences

Somali 1 has built-in audio instructions so you won’t need to read on-screen text.

At each step Daariz will automatically analyze your progress so that you’ll get more practice on areas you need to develop more.

When you’ve completed all the lessons in each module and you’ve made progress, you’ll have the opportunity to test your knowledge and understanding (and win a virtual camel!). Tests are important because they show you whether you’re ready to proceed to the next topic.


Somali 2 is packed full of practice texts which are short passages carefully designed to improve your reading speed, vocabulary, and spelling. Each passage includes:

●An opportunity to practice writing
●An opportunity to practice sight reading
●A test to measure your words-per-minute reading speed
●A test to measure your reading comprehension

But that’s not all!

With Somali 2 you’ll also get access to a library of incredible short stories, which means you’ll have a lot of fun improving your reading speed. Each story you work through gives you immediate feedback with a personal reading speed and comprehension score.

Why Daariz?
