Despite being one of the three major languages of Nigeria, it's incredibly hard to find anything Igbo-related for me. After reaching Chinua Achebe's Things Fall Apart in 2012 I seriously considered studying Igbo, but stuck with my on again, off again interest in Yoruba. There is media such as songs and movies, but I run across a lot more Yoruba movies and Yoruba/Pidgin English songs compared to Igbo.

For the learner's sake, it's unfortunate this file is only twenty-four pages and the tones aren't marked. Doesn't Igbo have downstep, not just a high-low-(maybe mid) tone system, along with a tense/lax or +ATR/-ATR distinction? The Latin alphabet really needs more vowels...
