The language: Twi

Twi, also known as Akan kasa, or Akan-speak, is a dialect of the Akan language and is the most widely spoken and famous language with approximately 9 million native speakers in Ghana. A lot of Twi is also spoken in Germany, as Ghanaians are the largest African minority who have been based in Germany for many years.

The Lecturers

My Name is Richard Jnr. Bonnie.

I am founder of Afro-lingua Institute. For the Sankofa language school, I design and lecture beginner to advanced courses in Twi (Akan). 
Research, technological development, teaching and learning of African languages could not be more crucial in our current world. I believe the development and empowerment of African societies globally is closely tied to the development of African languages, and I am very excited to contribute to this cause.

My Name is Kwadwo Owusu Ansah.

I am the tutor for the Beginners and Children Twi courses.
I grew up in Ghana for the most part of my life but currently live and study in Germany. 
The Twi language is important to me because it is part of my heritage and culture. Furthermore, I like how it composes a mix of complicated pronunciations with simple grammatical structure and a vivid use of imagery. Teaching Twi has become a passion that enables me to pass on a fraction of my culture to others, who share interest in learning it. Teaching children especially, is fundamental to create a basis on which the children can build on from young age and quickly connect with their roots.
