Learning Hausa (and other less commonly taught languages) using the Internet

Who will write the first Hausa blog?

Posted by hausaonline on Monday, November 13, 2006

I have just come across a blog in Somali, “The Voice Of Somaliland Diaspora-Ottawa”. Their mission statement says:

“We are committed to publishing and disseminating news and information that contributes to a more comprehensive understanding of current events, as they are occurring to our readers”

Nearly everything else is written in Somali, which prompted me to challenge the readers of my own blog to start something similar in Hausa. The technical aspect of publishing text, audio or even video is nowadays easier than ever before and you can have it hosted for free. All we lack is people who share their ideas in Hausa.

    This is indeed a blog in Hausa, and I congratulate the owner for this. Unfortunately, it is no longer active. All the postings were written on 26th January 2006.

  2. […] So for anyone else who wants to join me in quest to become a Kano donkey; here is a list of English words with their Hausa and Kiswahili translations and who knows maybe there shall be an all Hausa blog soon. […]

    These aren’t all entirely in Hausa, but here are some blogs with Hausa content that are more updated.

  8. Hey, a little bit of a side question here but do any of the blogs you’ve found talk about Hausa clothing such as whether the indigo color is still used, and also anything on Hausa names and meanings?
