I have noticed a new feature on the website of Muryar Jamus, the Hausa service of radio Deutsche Welle. Underneath many of the news item, one can now see a small loudspeaker symbol. If you click on it, a popup window will appear and one can read the following:
Please note the following: For the Internet Explorer versions 5.0 or higher, you will only be able to listen to MP3 files directly when you click on the icon. If you would like to save the file on your hard drive, click on the icon with the right mouse button and select “save under” from the menu. Then choose where you want to save the file on your hard drive.
So it is now possible to listen to the news item while reading it. Or, if you prefer to listen to it later, you can download it and save it on your computer or MP3 player.
The content and vocabulary of Hausa news is usually too advanced for a beginning learner of Hausa, but listening to a text while reading it may help.
