This introduction to Akan is designed to provide the basic structures and vocabulary that a non-native speaker would need to use Akan. The text is based on the Asante dialect of Akan, and is divided into twenty units. Each unit consists of a conversation given in English and Asante, drills for the classroom or individual practice, grammar notes, and a list of the vocabulary introduced in the unit. The conversations are of graded difficulty. A sketch of the Akan alphabet and pronunciation precedes the text. The appendices consist of: (1) a discussion of the Akan verb in primary intonation, (2) a discussion of the Akan verb in secondary intonation, and (3) notes on conjunctions. An English-Akan vocabulary completes the volume.
