We will also read Twi stories books, listen to and write about specific social settings, e.g., home, market, etc. Listening tasks will involve spontaneous face-to-face and recorded conversations. Class exercises will include grammar, storytelling, writing, dictation exercises, comprehension exercises (both written and listening comprehension), essays on different contexts of language usage and of course, role-playing.
