How to say hello in Ghana is a must-read for anyone who wants to live in a place where they don’t know the language. While Ghanaian slang is not particularly specific, here are a few phrases that I would find useful.
If you are looking to find your way around Ghana, I would highly recommend the book How to Speak English in Ghana. The book is written by a Ghanaian expat living in the Netherlands speaking English with a Ghanaian accent. It is written by a Ghanaian expat living in the United States with a Ghanaian English accent. It is written by an Englishman from the United Kingdom speaking English with a Ghanaian accent.
So how are you planning to say hello in Ghana? I’m assuming you aren’t just throwing around words like “Hi” and “How are you” and “Good” in such a casual fashion that you’re creating a really awkward situation for the person you’re talking with.
Well, in Ghana, you are expected to be more formal. In fact, there are several public places where you are expected to be more formal and act more like a Ghanaian. You will have to take a course in Ghanaian etiquette, learn to speak (and write) properly, and learn to give a proper handshake. You will have to learn not to show your backside and also not to make a lot of noise.
You will also have to learn how to speak in a proper Ghanaian way. In fact, you will have to speak in a proper Ghanaian voice and also learn how to make eye contact. You will also learn how to use the English language properly. You will have to learn proper English.
So how do you introduce yourself to someone without sounding like you’re from a big European country? It turns out you can’t. You just have to make sure you do it right. When a person first meets you, they’ll ask if you’re from America or Europe, and you should respond in the affirmative.
There are lots of other things to learn before you can start speaking, but these two should get you started. They will also help you learn how to say hello in a proper Ghanaian. You can also practice your eye contact, because people often look at you when you make eye contact. If you do it right, you should be able to make eye contact with people easily.
You can also practice saying “how are you” and “your friend”. If you say “hi” and someone answers back, you can then continue with your conversation.
Like many other cultures, Ghanaians are famous for their ability to talk and communicate easily. You will often find that you can get along with people from countries without such easy communication skills. But there is one thing that can ruin that, and that is the very thing that made the whole point of Ghana so interesting: the fear of not knowing what the other person is saying.
Sometimes it’s the way you speak, not necessarily the words themselves that cause trouble. This is especially true when it comes to language learners. This is because Ghanaians like to communicate with one another in their native language. So when you speak like you are speaking in your mother tongue, you are likely to be misunderstood. This is because of the way you speak, not because of the words.
