Learn Ga in Ghana
By signing up for the Ga language course, you’ll immerse yourself in one aspect of Ghana’s rich and dynamic culture. This tonal language is spoken by around 600,000 people in the country and is a widely understood language in Accra.
Practice your new language skills with staff and people from the community at your placement, with your host family during meals or haggle over the price of fruit with shop owners at the local market.
This language add-on is available to volunteers based in Dodowa, Ghana. The structure of your lessons will be decided on by you and your private tutor. On arrival in Ghana, after you’ve settled in and met your host family and placement staff, you’ll be introduced to your language tutor.
Together, you’ll work on the outline of each tutoring session based on your interests and language level. During this meeting, you’ll also decide on your weekly timetable.
All of our volunteers in Ghana live with a host family. You’ll share the house with volunteers from around the world and sit down to meals prepared by your host family. Weekends and free time will be spent exploring Ghana, practicing your new Ga skills and building friendships with volunteers and locals that will last a lifetime.
You can choose from 5-hour, 14-hour, or 30-hour Ga Language Course add-on options, which run alongside your main volunteer project. These prices are in addition to your main project price. Please take a look at our Ghana language prices for more information.
