Bukin ranar Matasa

Posted by hausaonline on Wednesday, August 12, 2009

Today, 12 August, is International Youth Day. On the BBC Hausa website (Shirin Safe of today), I found the following: “A yau kasashen Duniya ke bukin ranar Matasa ta wannan shekara. Majilissar Dinkin Duniya ce ta ware ranar goma sha biyu na watan Agustan kowacce shekera domin wayar da kan jama’a akan matsaloli da kuma kalubalen da matasa ke fuskanta.”

My wish to all the youth in Africa: May you be able to celebrate this day and contribute to the society in which you live.

Here are a three Hausa proverbs related to youth:

  • Da rarrafe yaro ya kan tashi.
  • Yaro bai san wuta ba sai ta ƙone shi.
  • Yaran zamani tun ba su tafasa ba su kan ƙone.

Which other Hausa proverbs related to youth do you know?

Sorry, this isn’t Deutsche Welle

Posted by hausaonline on Wednesday, November 7, 2007

A number of times, readers of this blog have written comments to my posts which were really email messages to Radio Deutsche Welle (Muryar Jamus), thinking that this is their website. In the past, I have usually forwarded these email messages to Radio Deutsche Welle, but now I feel that I need to clarify that this weblog is not linked to Deutsche Welle or any other radio station that has a Hausa service, even if I have referred to their broadcasts or websites in some of my posts. This is my private weblog, which is all about learning Hausa (and other less commonly taught languages) using the Internet.

If you want to contact the Hausa Service of Radio Deutsche Welle or some other radio station, please send an email directly to their email address. Here is a list (found on their websites, which are listed here under “Links“):
