This book will help you to learn Yoruba quickly and easily. It is written in the proper Yoruba-Oyo by the author who was born and raised in Oyo Alaafin. A famous international language instructor, Professor Abraham Ajibade Adeleke has been the coordinator and professor of African Studies for about a decade. He is also a professor of Psychology and anthropology at Albany State University, Albany, Georgia, U.S.A.

Yoruba grammar is best taught when it is taught in the context of the Yoruba people. For this reason, the book has covered some Yoruba major culture and tradition such as the Yoruba naming system, greeting traditions, weddings and the Yoruba moral sciences that include proverbs, oral traditions, and the use of myths, fables and idiomatic expressions. There is also some focus on poetry.

Ready-made vocabulary is provided right from the start. It utilizes everyday Yoruba conversational words and phrases that sometimes sound like their English, French and Spanish equivalents. Because of its comprehensiveness, this book is ideal for all classroom instructions and private teaching.
