This open access, print-on-demand textbook will help beginning learners of Yorùbá develop communicative skills in listening, speaking, reading and writing. In addition, the program will provide learners with an understanding of how to use Yorùbá appropriately in a range of cultural contexts. The materials present the language and culture through various forms of media: scripted, recorded dialogues and videos of unscripted interaction. Ample use of playful tongue twisters, songs, games, and poetry facilitates the learning of tones in a fun and user-friendly way.
