at the University of Florida


Welcome to the website that allows you to explore the Ghanaian language of Akan. More specifically, you can discover information about the dialect of Asante Twi.


Akan courses are available through the Department of Languages, Literatures, and Cultures and through the Center for African Studies at the University of Florida.

Thanks to the generous support of the Center for International Business Education and Research (CIBER) and the Center of African Studies (CAS) we now offer an Online Akan Program.
