Last year, the government launched and implemented the highly successful Year of Return.
This campaign refocused a lot of diasporan attention on Ghana. People of Ghanaian descent who live in the diaspora and have never been to Ghana also gained a renewed interest in the affairs of the country of their ancestors.
However, many found a challenge in their ability to fully interact with Ghanaians in Ghana based on a language barrier.
Most of the Ghanaians in the diaspora could not speak any of the local languages at all or frequently for ease of communication.
To help Ghanaians living in the diaspora learn to speak selected Ghanaian language, this Ghanaian has established a school to teach Twi.
The online school called the Talking Drum Academy is on the “mission to empower a community of African language learners.
Like a lot of Ghanaians in the diaspora I didn’t grow up speaking Twi but I’ve always wanted to learn,” Kwaku Dapaah said in the Tweet that announced his academy.
“I’ve made a commitment to do this and want to build a community of others who want to do the same. Who’s on it? 🇬🇭,” he asked.
Ghanaians in the diaspora who want to learn Twi can follow this link and sign up.
