Ga (Gã) is a member of the Kwa branch of Niger-Congo languages. It is spoken in Ghana by about 600,000 people, particular in the southeast of the country around the capital, Accra.
Christian Jacobsen Protten, the son of a Danish soldier and an African woman, devised a way of writing Ga with the Latin alphabet in about 1764.

We Accra34.com put things together to bring you authentic Ga, in fun and effective formats. Did you know that in Ghana, most Ga speakers do not use the Ga language to say "Good morning", "Good afternoon", or "Good evening"? Instead, they usually simply say these in English. (Greeting People)
