Ghanaian Language School Hosts Workshop’s on 7 &15 February

Whether its Twi, Ga or Fante you want to learn this workshop is for you

Are you Ghanaian but can’t speak any of the languages? Are you Ghanaian who can speak some of the languages but want to learn more? Are you a non Ghanaian emigrating to or have an interest in Ghana and would like to speak the language? or are you simply someone who wants to learn a new language?

Whatever your reason any there is always a good one to learn the language(s) of a country with a rich culture and heritage.

The Ghanaian Language School (GLS) was founded by a husband & wife; Ben & Naomi Fletcher who both have a passion for celebrating their cultural identity. They run the school alongside three senior language tutors with a similar passion of the culture and languages of Ghana and bringing these to life.
