Languages Of Ghana

English is the official language spoken and Pidgin (English spoken without regard for grammar) the unofficial language. English is widely spoken in those parts of the country likely to be visited by travelers. There is little need for short-stay travelers to try and familiarize themselves with any local tongues, even though knowing a few words or greetings in a local language will often help open doors and break through barriers, particularly in the rural areas. There are several dialects spoken in Ghana, but the principal languages are the Akan (Twi and Fante-speaking),Ewe,Ga, and Hausa.
