teach yourself hausa

From the site:

Hello ("Sannu"). This website is dedicated to anyone interested in learning and promoting the Hausa language, the people's culture and tribe. My name is Sam Odiaka.There aren't many resources on learning the Hausa language on the Internet (that I could find), so I decided to put some up myself.Before you start, may I remind you one of the famious Hausa Proverb: Karatu,farkonka madaci, karshenka zuma ("it may be bitter to begin study but the endis sweet")Hausa is one of the major languages of Nigeria. It is the main lingua franca ("A medium of communication between peoples of different languages") throughout Niger and the northern two-thirds of Nigeria.
