Hi there! Welcome to the fourth video lesson in the Common Twi Expressions Series. In our last lesson, we learnt about the proper way of saying good morning, good afternoon and good evening in Twi, as well as how to respond to each of them.
Today, we are following up on our last lesson with one on season’s greetings in Twi. By the end of the lesson, you will be able to properly say happy birthday, happy Easter and merry Christmas in Twi. You will also be able to respond to all of these greetings.
