To mark International Motherland Language Day on 21 February, we are inviting people fluent or learning a Ghanaian language to tell us why they love speaking their language.
We showcase some of the Ghanaian language learning organisations we are working with to promote this important initiative.
We feature Cee Koko Books.
Cee Koko is an African language learning platform established in 2020 by founder Christian Kofi Agyapong.
“I created Cee Koko to improve my Twi by producing material to help me learn and become more confident in speaking,” said Christian. “I would like to replicate this with the diaspora and learners all over the world and create a safe space for people to talk and to learn.”
Cee Koko offers a range of interactive educational A4-sized language books in basic Twi, Ga, Ewe, Yoruba, Igbo, and Swahili. The books are targeted at learners aged four years and over, making them ideal for young teens and adult learners.
The books include guides on pronunciation, writing, colouring and include learning activities and illustrations.
Christian is in the process of releasing language books in Hausa, Shona, Ndebele, Luganda, and Zulu.
“My goal is to break down the walls of division and build strength in unity by promoting African language learning,” he said.
As well as his books, Christian produces language learning content on YouTube, and is working with Saturday/ Sunday schools to deliver workshops with UK-based language teacher in the UK and across Africa online. His aim is for Cee Koko to become a global online learning hub.
The Cee Koko name is derived from the first initial of his name and the first to initials of his Akan name Kofi.
