AMELANG 153A: First-Year Twi, First Quarter

Twi is the extensively spoken dialect of Akan, the ethnic group of Ghana in West Africa. Being the largest ethnic group of the country Akans have spread Twi in almost all major areas of Ghana. Therefore, it has become pragmatic for non-Ghanaians to acquire Twi if they are to visit Ghana and engage in communication with majority of Ghanaians. This course is the first/second of three levels in the acquisition of basic Akan cultural expressions in Twi. Its goal is to build a strong foundation for cultural awareness and familiarization with the Akan cultural components that support effective communication and social interaction in Ghana. We will emphasize three out of the five structural levels of the culture: language (phonetics/tones/pronunciation and grammar/vocabulary), ethical norms, indigenous food/dishes, and music & dance. We will also learn some Akan cultural points and worldview. Class lesson format will include role-plays and oral presentations.
