More About Beginner's Yoruba by Kayode J. Fakinlede
 
 
 
Overview
Yoruba is the official language of more than 30 million people, who live principally in southwestern Nigeria, parts of Benin Republic, and Togo. It is also used as a language of worship in many countries of the Diaspora, including Brazil, Cuba, and Haiti, where people of Yoruba origin settled during the slave trade. "Beginner's Yorubo is designed for use both as a classroom text and as a self-study guide. Practice dialogues, in combination with grammatical explanations, will aid the student in understanding the basics of the language. Since Yoruba is a tonal language, the author pays special attention to properly explaining pronunciation and to formulating the practice conversations. Each of the 15 lessons contains a vocabulary section that highlights the important aspects of the topic discussed in the chapter. Quizzes and practice exercises are integrated into the lessons to assist learning. Information on various aspects of Yoruba culture, including religion, songs, and stories, completes this work.
