The Ghana Language

The Ghana Language

The official language of the West African nation of Ghana is English. However, the Ga language is spoken by many of the native peoples of the country. This recording, produced by Ivan Annan in 1964, is an introduction to Ga for English speakers traveling in Ghana and for others who may be interested in learning the language. Sharing languages, Annan hopes, will help promote intercultural understanding and connection. The album’s liner notes include English translations and transliterations.
