We will learn the alphabet together. We will also review some simple grammar rules, practice common phrases, and we will have fun memorizing many important vocabulary lists, and everything else that you see below.

Hausa is one of Africa's largest spoken languages after Arabic, French, English and Swahili.

Native speakers of Hausa are mostly to be found in the African country of Niger and in the north of Nigeria, but the language is used as a trade language across a much larger swathe of West Africa, Central Africa and western Sudan, particularly amongst Muslims.
