How? How Old? How Much? How Many? in Twi

Today’s lesson completes our series on Twi question words. We’ve, thus far, had a lesson each on the introduction, 4 ways to ask “what?” in Twi, how to ask “who?“, “whom?” and “whose?” in Twi, 2 ways to ask “why?”, “where?”, “which?”, and “when?” in Twi.

In this final lesson, we are looking at how to ask “how?”, “how old?”, “how much?”, and “how many?” in Twi.

I consider this series a very important one for all learners of Twi. Having a grasp over all the question words we’ve covered up to this point will help you to be able to ask questions here and there. I therefore encourage you to go over the lessons in the series one more time, and try to form a question with each question word.
