Title: A Guide to Teaching and Learning Hausa as a Foreign Language
Written By: Aishatu Iya Ahmed
URL: http://lincom-shop.eu
Series Title: LINCOM Language Coursebooks 14
Description:

A guide to teaching and learning Hausa as a foreign language is designed in
such a way that language is blended with culture. The book is divided into
thirteen units and each unit has topics on linguistic aspects of the language
as well as culture related matters. The language aspect discusses the basic
things Hausa learners need to learn to help them acquire a comprehensive
knowledge of the language as well as to enable them to communicate
effectively in it. The linguistic topics discussed include Hausa consonants,
vowels and diphthongs; word formation, tones, orthography, parts of speech
and sentence structure.

The culture section of the book puts emphasis on some cultural aspects of
the language that learners need to know. These include various forms of
greetings, kinship terms, condolences, traditional names, counting, Hausa
wedding, naming ceremony, bargaining, Sallah festivals in Hausaland and
Hausa crafts such as dying, barbering and butchering. Photographs of some
cultural events also back the culture section of the book. Furthermore,
adequate Hausa sentences have been provided in the book with their English
equivalents for learners to practice.
