    My Somali is very beginner level and I trying to learn to say it more. I’m sorry if I’m getting the words wrong. I want the title of my story to be Furashada Kuwa Dhacay. The English title is Redemption of the Fallen Ones. What’s a good site for speaking Somali ? I do watch Sam of Somalia. I’m going order a Rosetta stone to help. But what would be a good title in Somali. Also, did Somalis ever have their own written language? Tuaregs do, So is there any other Africans with their own written language. Please and thank you

    Its good that you're trying to learn Somali. Are you Somali? My suggestion for a name would be Abaha cun which means Path of Redemption and Waxaan Ahay Wasaqad which means Blue Light Key

    Partially, through my father’s side. They came over during the 1940s from the area that was known as British Somaliland, which around that time Mario and Luigi were taking over. Lol. I like Abaha cun.

    Tubta tawbad keenka = Path Of Redemption.
    Not quite the same but it's the only correct sentence I could come up with.

    Yeah, that’s why I like to talk with people that speak the language fluently. Is the Rosetta stone a good option or no ?

    Honestly, I don't think anyone on this forum can actually speak Somali at 100% fluency barring 1 or 2 people. Rosetta stone does not have a Somali course and in general, is not a good way to learn languages.

    https://www.reddit.com/r/LearnSomali/, they have some resources to get you started.

    What’s a good word for someone who lost in morals looking for redemption A wayward soul. The story centers around dhaqan celis, reconnection with God, and using nationalism that better oneself. Sharaf plays a large role as well.

    Habaabay or lumay would be used to describe someone who’s lost.

    Not sure about what the translation for a wayward person would be, how about "caasi"? It contains the rebellious and disobedient nature associated with waywardness. Most of us know of its use in relation to children disobeying their parents and in terms of religion, so maybe someone else can tell if it would be applicable.
    Maybe another word would be faasiq, which again is used in a religious context.
    Use the afmaal dictionary it is usually more accurate than google translate, you can check it out here


    My advice is to try a shorter title and use "redemption of the fallen ones" as a subtitle. I would probably even keep the subtitle in English.

    @Céleste Lol, my Somali is mediocre at best. I rely entirely on dictionaries for advanced words.:mjdontkno:
    But thanks for the compliment and the mention, walaal :westbrookswag:

    Agreed, @Kurolady08 keep us updated, sounds interesting.
