Course Description

Introductory Twi is an eight class course where you will learn the essentials to function in a Twi-speaking environment within a Ghanaian cultural context. You will learn greetings, introductions and basic conversational skills. You will learn pronunciation, sentence structure and regular verb tenses. Cultural lessons are part of language learning and you will learn how to speak intelligently about yourself and to find out information from others, how to address different people, proverbs, how to speak about where you are from, where you live and more! Learning activities are appropriate for all ages and will include listening, speaking, reading, role-playing and writing. You will be expected to reinforce learning between classes by completing homework assignments and by learning and using vocabulary words. A practical assessment of acquired skills concludes the course.
