    I think that there are appropriate twi spellings for these names eg. Sap)n not sarpong. 3dweso and not Ejisu. Akyeampon and not Acheampong/Akyeampong.

    My suggestion is that you try and introduce a row or column where words are first spelt appropriately. Then you can have how the Europeans spelt it as it has come to stay and then etc. If I am learning Asanti twi, dw(o,e,i) not the same as j(o,e,i).

    Aside that there are alphabets that are not part of the twi alphabets and this distinction if not drawn will compromise on the true language you seek to teach and it’s quality. Thank you

  • Thank you for sharing. Not to many people in your position are so gracious. Your article was very poignant and understandable. It helped me to understand very clearly. Thank you for your help.

    I am looking for someone to teach me this language because I am from Atlanta,Ga and my husband is from Ghana and I want to learn his language in order to communicate and talk to him. So that’s why I am asking if someone would help me learn it. And because I am disable and not able to buy the software due to not having any money nor being able to work in order to get the information that I need to get it. So if there is anyone out there who is willing to help me i would really appreciate it to the fullness of my heart. Thank you very much.
