Five years ago, on May 20th 2006, I started this blog with a review of Philip J. Jaggar’s book Hausa. Amsterdam/Philadelphia: John Benjamins. 2001. Since then, I have published posts on many different topics related to the Hausa language and other less commonly taught languages. You can find links to all the posts in the archive.
The original idea of this blog was to help people who want to learn Hausa. It was for them (and myself) that I started collecting links to Hausa texts, video, audio, blogs and other Hausa-related websites. In the meantime, I find that many — if not most — of the people who visit this blog seem to be Hausa speakers. At least, many of the comments to the posts indicate that.
I am happy about so many people visiting this blog — sometimes more than 400 per day. Also, some of my former colleagues (I was working at a German University before) have told me that they recommend my blog to their students. That is why I try to keep it up and running, even if I don’t find too much time to come up with new language learning ideas.
Let me know if you find this blog useful for your Hausa learning. And if you have ideas you would like to share (something like this or this), you could even write a guest post yourself. Hope to hear from you!
