This lesson begins the Common Twi Expressions series. The series introduces you to the most commonly-used Twi phrases and sentences. Each lesson in the series features only a handful of expressions. This is to ensure that you take your time to grasp the contexts within which they are used, as well as the proper ways of saying them.

Today, we are looking at 3 expressions: 1) please 2) welcome and 3) thank you. So, how do we say those in Twi?
