Twi (pronounced 'chwee') is a language spoken in Ghana by about 6 million people. It is a dialect of the Akan language. Like most languages spoken south of the Sahara, Twi is a tone language, which means that word distinction is determined not only by vowels and consonants, but also by the pitch on which each syllable is pronounced. It is therefore essential to hear the pronounciation of the words not just to read them.
