When we stopped off at Home Depot to pick up a new chain saw, Ken's birthday present, I was so excited about my trip that I walked up and down the aisles looking for Charles who is from Ghana and works in the paint department so I could practice my Twi with him. I have been listening to Alexandra's Twi language CD's while I drive in the car, work in the garden or go for my morning walk with my dog Leo. I am surprised at how quickly it is coming to me. But I must sound pretty silly walking through the woods saying......"Wo te brafo annaaaahhhhh?" I actually find it easier than French and kind of fun. There aren't all the masculine and feminine tenses and many times the word sounds like the meaning you are trying to get across. cacra = little, peeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee= a lot. I have no idea how any of this is supposed to be spelled. My apologies to any Ghanaian reading this.
This is Ken as he works on the computers even though he is exhausted from a busy day of yard work. Good thing he loves yard work, computers and me.:)
It is 3am now and finally all the software works. It brought back such fond memories when we heard the little songs we used to hear as our kids would sit at the desk in our kitchen learning and playing with the same games. I really think this will help the kids learn to read and speak English much quicker and easier.
