Is it possible to access Peace Corps language training materials for personal use and learning, specifically, in the Bambara language?

The Peace Corps maintains an online library at:

Peace Corps Online Library.

Unfortunately, the specific training materials that you are looking for don't appear to be on the web at this time.

We'll keep our eye out if Peace Corps starts posting any of their language training materials on the web.

Best Regards,

You can order the materials that Peace Corps uses through the Indiana University language program. The series is the An ka Bamanakan Kalan by Charles Bird. I can't remember the link for the website, but they have AUDIO of the materials as well. Hope this helps. Shigh [PC Mali 95-97].

bambara is not hard to learn at all.
