VoA Hausa News: Another good source for reading and listening to Hausa

Another good source for reading and listening to Hausa is the Hausa section of Voice of America (Muryar Amurka). VoA produces radio programmes in 44 languages and TV programmes in 24 languages.

A very useful feature is the sitemap (Abubuwan Dake Wannan Dandali ). Here, you can pick the topics (Fannoni Dabam-dabam) you want to read about, e.g. education (ilmi) or politics (siyasa). Or else, you can just use the menu to find your way.

Unfortunately, the Hausa “hooked letters” are not marked as such.

Many of the news stories can be downloaded as MP3 files here.

Hausa programmes produced by Radio Deutsche Welle

Radio Deutsche Welle offers a variety of programmes in Hausa:

You can listen to the Hausa programmes, which are broadcast as Real Audio files. You can also download the manuscripts. The hooked letters ƙ ɓ ɗ are used in some, but unfortunately not in all cases.
