Intermediate Yoruba offers an effective guide to mastering Yoruba quickly and easily, written in the proper Yoruba-Oyo, by author Abraham Ajibade Adeleke, who was born and raised in Oyo Alaafin. Yoruba grammar is best taught in the context of the Yoruba culture. For this reason, Intermediate Yoruba covers various Yoruba cultural traditions, names, greetings, and oral traditions, as well as the use of myths, fables, and idiomatic expressions. It includes a vocabulary list, along with everyday Yoruba conversational words and phrases that, in some cases, sound like their English, French, and Spanish equivalents. This comprehensive volume is ideal for both classroom instruction and private teaching sessions. Additionally, Intermediate Yoruba includes a series of case studies and juxtaposed ethnographic materials to cover Yoruba culture thoroughly. Intended to contribute to the development of the positive study of African languages and cultures, this volume serves as a valuable resource to anyone wishing to learn about Yoruba.
