                Introducing the warrior king. Rich in Gold, home to the largest artificial lake in the world by surface area “Lake Volta” and the second largest producer of Cocoa in the world. Akwaabe (Welcome) to Ghana, the gold coast of Africa. Ghana is located in the West Africa, sharing border with Burkina Faso to the north, Togo to the east, Gulf of Guinea to the south and Côte d Ίvoire to the west. As a pacesetter, Ghana was the first country in West Africa to regain independence from their British colonial master.  The country has a population of about 24 million people and can boast as having the best educational system in West Africa. English is the official language which is used in school and as means of business transaction, although there are about nine other different languages in Ghana which are also thought in school like Akan, Dagaare, Dangbe, Dagbane, Ewe, Ga, Kasem, Nzema, and Gonja. The Kwa language which is also known as Twi and Fante is widely spoken in all part of Ghana.

Skandik Afrik got some translation of Twi to English and Swedish languages through our Ghanaian friend which we will share with our readers
