I only know a couple of words/phrases ~ am not Ghanaian but married one. B)

Me Dossi (spelling ? ) = Thank you

Me do wo paa = I love you

Me lowo vava = I love you (oops that's Ewe)

Me fie wo = I miss you

Akwaaba = Welcome


If you have access to the web, that website is pretty good but of course you must have speakers to hear the language spoken.

I will check my Twi language book at home and see if Ican give you some better phrases

Thanks, Karebo, yes, he's still giving me all that and more! :wub:

Somehow I think it's more romantic if understood in Twi.....

He sweet talks me in Twi and then asks if I can understand. Hmm, am I better off not knowing? LOL
