You are welcome to the second video lesson under the Common Twi Expressions series. In our last video, we learnt about how to properly say please, welcome and thank you in Twi.

In today’s video, I show you how to say yes, no and sorry in Twi. Like I mentioned in our first video, each lesson in the series will focus on just a few expressions in order to give you enough time to get their pronunciation right.
