This Luganda textbook for Peace Corps Uganda students follows the first book published in 1968. The 15 lessons alternate between coversations and various subjects to enable students to improve their speaking ability, and notes on grammar to enable students to gain confidence in their use of the language. A few lines extracted from the local newspaper about going to the moon were used to form some of the lessons in this book so that students were able to see and learn styles of language used in newspapers. The final lesson consists of a long essay and vocabulary followed by a list of questions to check final comprehension of the student.

The Ganda language, or Luganda, is the major language of Uganda, spoken by over sixteen million Ganda and other people mainly in Southern Uganda, including the capital Kampala. It belongs to the Bantu branch of the NigerCongo language family. Typologically, it is a highly agglutinating language with subjectverbobject word order and nominativeaccusative morphosyntactic alignment. With about seven million first-language-speakers in the Buganda region and about ten million others with a working knowledge, it is the most widely spoken Ugandan language, and as second language it follows English and precedes Swahili. The language is used in some primary schools in Buganda as pupils begin to learn English, the primary official language of Uganda. Until the 1960s, Ganda was also the official language of instruction in primary schools in Eastern Uganda.
