Subject: what are the rules of reading in Hausa?

Dear Hausa colleagues, could you advise me the rules of reading in
Hausa? How shoud one read the Hausa letter "C"? I guess "SH" is the
sound "sh" like in English "show", is it not? Are there any other
letter combonations as one sound? Can you send me a Hausa text in the
txt format, that is as a simple message like this one? Looking forward
to hearing from you soon to yutambhotmail.com Yours sincerely YUri
