The Study Of Twi Language Established In London University [video]

A centre for the study of Asante Twi and culture has been established in London

 

The language centre which is the brainchild of a Croydon-based Ghanaian publisher, Madam Georgina Amma Tweneboah Sah, has already won accreditation to teach Twi up to General Certificate of Examination (GCE) Advanced Level.

 

Madam Tweneboah Sah said in an interview in London that the teaching methods of the centre largely involved the use of audio and visual material as well as cultural performances to impart the language.

 

She said the response from UK-based Ghanaians and non-Ghanaians had been overwhelming, adding that “after attending classes for 10 weeks they start speaking Twi fluently.”

 

The 65-year-old publisher, who hails from Akim Oda, said there was a large Ghanaian community in the United Kingdom (UK), “and we must take steps to ensure that our children do not lose their true identity as Ghanaians”.

 

In addition, she said there was now a tidal wave of people from Europe and other parts of the world going to invest in businesses in Ghana, and that the knowledge of a Ghanaian language would definitely give them greater confidence to do business in Ghana.

 

“Inter-marriage between Ghanaians and Europeans also continue to rise, and if the spouses of our children speak our language the better for the marriage”, Madam Tweneboah Sah added.

 

She appealed for support from both governmental and non-governmental organisations towards expanding the centre.
