What You’ll Learn

In these 10 lessons, you’ll cover the basics: saying hello, asking for or giving information, scheduling a meal or a meeting, asking for or giving basic directions, and much more. You’ll be able to handle minimum courtesy requirements, understand much of what you hear, and be understood at a beginning level, but with near-native pronunciation skills.

The Pimsleur Method

We make no secret of what makes this powerful method work so well. Paul Pimsleur spent his career researching and perfecting the precise elements anyone can use to learn a language quickly and easily. Here are a few of his “secrets”:

The Principle of Anticipation

In the nanosecond between a cue and your response, your brain has to work to come up with the right word. Having to do this boosts retention, and cements the word in your mind.

Core Vocabulary

Words, phrases, and sentences are selected for their usefulness in everyday conversation. We don’t overwhelm you with too much, but steadily increase your ability with every lesson.

Graduated Interval Recall

Reminders of new words and structures come up at the exact interval for maximum retention and storage into your long-term memory.

Organic Learning

You work on multiple aspects of the language simultaneously. We integrate grammar, vocabulary, rhythm, melody, and intonation into every lesson, which allows you to experience the language as a living, expressive form of human culture.

Learning in Context

Research has shown that learning new words in context dramatically accelerates your ability to remember. Every scene in every Pimsleur lesson is set inside a conversation between two people. There are no drills, and no memorization necessary for success.

Active Participation

The Pimsleur Method + active learner participation = success. This method works with every language and every learner who follows it. You gain the power to recall and use what you know, and to add new words easily, exactly as you do in English.

The Twi Language

English is Ghana's official language, however, each ethnic group has a native tongue, some of which include Akan, Dagomba, Ewe, and Ga-Adangme. Twi (Akan language family) is most commonly used in the southern two-thirds of Ghana for communication. Pimsleur's Twi uses native speakers from Accra.

Tech Talk

- CDs are formatted for playing in all CD players, including car players, and users can copy files for use in iTunes or Windows Media Player.

Comments about Twi Phase 1, Units 1-10:

This product works well. In only a couple days I could speak some sentences without having to refer to anything. It is nice because it is all audio, meaning that you can practice wherever and whenever, which is convenient and I felt it helps to keep you going; sometimes with other methods of learning a language it can be easy to slack because of lack of time. This makes it easier to use even with hectic schedules. As recommended by the company, I listened to one lesson a day, though I also listened to the same lesson a couple times a day and if I did not feel really confident would listen to it again the next day.
It is a great product, but I was expecting a little more. I feel it could teach a lot more vocabulary and grammar for the first phase and the price. However, there are not many options for learning Twi, so it is better than nothing and probably gives you a good start. Another disappointing thing is that Phase 1 is the only phase. There are no others that come after this. I did not realize that when I bought the product, so there is really no way to advance with this product itself - you will have to buy something else afterwards or go to Ghana if you want to continue learning.

Service and delivery comments:

I would improve this product by adding more lessons, which would mean more vocabulary and more grammar. I would also improve it by adding more phases!
I feel that it would have been nice if the alphabet and sentence structure were explained better in writing to be used as a reference.
I wish that I had known that there were no written exercises, no other phases, and how extensive the vocabulary and grammar was.
