Abstract:

A guide to teaching and learning Hausa as a foreign language is designed in 
such a way that language is blended with culture. The book is divided into 
thirteen units and each unit has topics on linguistic aspects of the language 
as well as culture related matters. The language aspect discusses the basic 
things Hausa learners need to learn to help them acquire a comprehensive 
knowledge of the language as well as to enable them to communicate 
effectively in it. The linguistic topics discussed include Hausa consonants, 
vowels and diphthongs; word formation, tones, orthography, parts of speech 
and sentence structure. 

The culture section of the book puts emphasis on some cultural aspects of 
the language that learners need to know. These include various forms of 
greetings, kinship terms, condolences, traditional names, counting, Hausa 
wedding, naming ceremony, bargaining, Sallah festivals in Hausaland and 
Hausa crafts such as dying, barbering and butchering. Photographs of some 
cultural events also back the culture section of the book. Furthermore, 
adequate Hausa sentences have been provided in the book with their English 
equivalents for learners to practice.
