As you learn how to speak the Twi language it is also very imperative that you learn a few Twi proverbs. A good Twi language speaker should be able to intersperse his or her sentences with on the spot witty proverbs to add colour and better understanding to what they are saying. Ultimately, learning Twi proverbs is an excellent way to increase your understanding of the Asante and Akan culture and the way Asantes think. Today, I have put together 10 interesting Twi proverbs for you to practice. Each proverb is in Twi, followed by its literal translation and then the English meaning. Try to memorize them and impress your Twi speaking friends!

A proverb is a simple and concrete saying, popularly known and repeated, that expresses a truth based on common sense or the practical experience of humanity. They are often metaphorical, ie. a figure of speech that identifies something as being the same as some unrelated thing, thus highlighting the similarities between the two.....

African Proverbs are rich and are used mainly by elders to communicate thoughts in a witty way. Sometimes you can decipher their meanings by mere logic, at other times you need a guide....

African proverbs like all other proverbs are a rhetorical and effective way of communicating. It contains everyday experiences packaged in a concise manner that makes the point it is trying to communicate easy to remember...

For example

One falsehood spoils a Thousand truths - An Ashanti proverb

Interpreted meaning: One mistake could undo series of good work....

This proverbs basically elaborates on Friendship... In the case where one mistake in a good friendship/relationship could just end that friendship/relation, the knowledge of this proverb can be applied... Yet difficult to decipher if you have no clue or whatsoever..
