Learning Lingala

I am a Congolese Diaspora and would like to connect to my culture by learning Lingala. My father speaks lingala and I know some people who do as well. I wan to figure out how I could effectively learn Lingala from my home in the states. I know there is not as much resources for it as the other languages.

This question is directed to those who have learned the language or know how to learn it remotely.

Lingala > English (friendly insult)

"Toza ba camaraed mai oza na mutu munene, lokola Shrek"

A friend from DRC agreed to write a nice but insulting comment on my t-shirt...and now I've got no idea what he called me, although I have reason to believe it regards Shrek.

Any help would be much appreciated!

Good resources for keeping up my Lingala?

I spent about 6 months doing primate research in Equateur in the DRC last year, and while I was there I found learning French extremely difficult. For many of the guides, French was a language either learnt in school and/or as a third or fourth language, and the saltier guys I was working with spoke Lingala with Francais being marginal (or even worse than mine). To further confuse things, a lot of the folk terms we used for different plants and animals were in Lomongo, another language spoken by the local ethnic group.

For the sake of my own sanity and theirs, I pretty much gave up on my French learning except for vocabulary and pivoted straight to Lingala, using this guide from a British expat that I happened to find one day while the internet was on. This put me at a disadvantage when trying to talk in depth with specialists from Kinshasa who spoke perfect French (and I had the grammar and vocabulary of the Frankenstein monster), but it did help me with talking to the guides actually helping drive the research, especially since my superior colleague spoke French but little Lingala, and that gave us sort of a different dynamic with how we utilized the languages. I'm not going to pretend that I'm particularly fluent but I could at the very least hold decent conversations in simple sentences, particularly since half the time it was used while sneaking around bonobo nests. Now that I'm back home, I'm not going to get nearly the same level of immersion that I did being forced to speak it every day.

Can anybody recommend good resources for keeping it up? I think knowing a Bantu language will be useful for helping learn other ones if I ever go back. It's not very well documented so I'm guessing that there's going to be a small reference pool here compared to something like Swahili. I'm also resuming my French knowledge, so maybe good resources for African French would be nice too.

Lingala help!

I work in a school with a large population of refugees from the Congo. A lot of them only speak Lingala, so giving direction is quite difficult at times. I've done some google searching, but seeing as this isn't a very popular language for English-speaking people to learn, I haven't found a lot. Honestly, I just need basics for directions, like "sit down," "thank you," "please," and "wait." There is a translator, but she is vastly overwhelmed because every class has at least one Lingala-only student. Any help would be much appreciated!
