    Default Abibitumi Kasa Testimonials

    Mo ne adwuma o! Kwame (Obadele), you have done well and your work with the Abibitumikasa.com and AKALI is exceptional. My advanced study of the Akan (Twi) language has grown much under your direction, and my studies have been enriched by your deep knowledge of the language and culture, competent yet flexible and accessible style of teaching, as well as a rare but greatly welcomed commitment which you demonstrate to learners. Our coverage of Akan proverbs, drum texts, stories, and poetry has reminded me that to study a language is to study a civilization, and I appreciate that. Though I will certainly continue to study Akan (Twi), and Yoruba a little later, I encourage those of our folks with internet access or who reside in Chicago to check out AKALI and its resources! Twi kasa no te sE nkwan-dE pa berE a obi nim mmE binom. EyE me sE meda onua Kwame ase Efiri sE abEdwaa pE nkwa a, na Ebata odum. Yoo, yEbEdi nkOmmO akyire yi ara!

    As a participant in the Yoruba class, I appreciate Obadele's instruction. As a teacher, I understand the challenges that are sometimes associated with multi-level instruction. I appreciate the way everyone was included in discussions, encouraged to actively participate, and, most of all, supportive of one another within the webclass. After each session, I would feel excited and more confident with my Yoruba language skills. Often, I would log off only to pick up the phone to tell family and friends what I'd learned that evening.

    I took Twi with Bro. Obadele in the Winter of 2005/2006.

    This class was an excellent experience. In addition to discussing the Twi language we also dealt with relevant political and cultural concepts. This is an element often missing in Afrikan language instruction.

    Bro. Obadele's knowledge of Afrikan languages and culture, coupled with his teaching abilities made this an immensely beneficial experience for me.

    I would highly recommend his courses to anyone interested in the languages of our ancestors.

    Brother Obadele's Twi class was awesome! As a participant, this class helped me to retune my Afrikan tounge. I enjoyed the many proverbs and songs we learned throughout the class. As a mother and wife I can share what I've learned with my family, as a teacher I can share what I've learned with my students and as a cultural activist I am happy to share what I've learned with our community.

    MO NE KASA Brother Obadele! We appreciate the gifts and talents you have brought to the world!

    :a7: Se alaafia ni,
    I attended Obadele's Yoruba classes at Betty Shabazz School early in 2006. Brother Obadele is an enthusiastic lover of African language. His teaching style is personable and thorough. I would highly recommend the classes to those interested in learning the Yoruba language. Even though I didn't take his Twi class, I would recommend the Twi class also because the Twi students raved about him as a teacher as well.

    I have been blessed to be able to participate in Obadele Kwame's online Twi classes. Developing the ear to receive the intonations has been a welcomed challenge. The dialogue exercises have truly helped with this process. Obadele's patience and generosity is a part of his many gifts. May Onyame continue to guide his path and may we all continue to receive the energies sent from our Nananom Nsamanfo though this work. I will definitely be taking the intermediate classes this fall and encourage everyone to reclaim our heritage and sign up for a course. Meda wo ase OkyerEkyerEfo Kwame.

    I am currently enrolled in the online Yoruba class and this is my second time around. The class is so necessary when it comes to finding our Afrikan tongues. Oluko Obadele makes it all make sense. He has a certain mastery and perspective when it comes to Yoruba language and culture that puts the "A-Ha" in learning. The "Oh, I get it".
    In order to speak a language well, you must also think in that language. This is the goal that is set and what I am striving for. Obadele has showed me this goal is attainable.

    I would highly recommend Abibitumi Kasa to anyone interested in learning to speak Yoruba! I have studied Yoruba language with Oluko Obadele since early 2006. I am currently in the Yoruba online class at Abibitumi Kasa ALI and I absolutely love it! Oluko Obadele has a creative style of teaching that makes learning a second language exciting. I am very grateful for the energy and effort Oluko puts into his classes - encouraging students to strive for mastery in speaking Yoruba fluently. Oluko Obadele's "ear for languages" helps students to focus on intonation and correct pronunciation. The recitation and dialogue practices really help to "re-train" our tongues and develop a deeper understanding of culture. Thank you Oluko for your commitment to Afrikan people and children of the Diaspora that desire to learn about Afrikan culture through language. :-)

    Yoruba language study with Oluko Obadele has been amazing. It has stirred up the joyful voices of my ancestors that have waited so long for me to speak to them and hear them in their own language. Oluko Obadele's teaching style has been more effective than any other course of language study that I have taken up. By answering his calling to study and teach Afrikan languages, Oluko Obadele helps others of us to answer the call of our ancestors to do whatever work we have come here to do with the most authentic and restored connection we can possibly have with our culture and traditions.
