Abstract:

The author has taught Akan (Asante-Twi) to both native and non-native speakers for over three decades now, and he has been able to prepare a bunch of learning materials for the various levels of study. Most of his non-Akan students have already made or are currently making effective use of their Asante-Twi in Ghana. Nevertheless, he realizes that learners still lack adequate material for quick review and effective practice of what they learn. This has often made it hard for them to adequately measure how much they have been able to absorb. Wo Nso Ka Bi: Akan Basic Grammar and Practice (BG&P) has been written not only to help solve this major problem, but also to arm the learner with the required interest and self-confidence. The communicative language teaching (CLT) approach, which is centered around learning to communicate, has been emphasized in recent times, but, as experience has clearly demonstrated, this approach (vibrantly useful, though) is unable to capture the full picture single-handedly. BG&P (in its twelve separate units) offers an alternative to the CLT model, combining different approaches, with reading, role play, translation, construction, and experiential reporting as the major tasks available to learners.
