A young man has recently taken to social media to open up about an unpleasant encounter he experienced.
Taking to his Facebook timeline, Im Goshers narrated that he made a call to a hotel for a reservation and he was told there were no rooms available.
He realized after the call that the denial could be due to the fact that he spoke fante to the receptionist hence he decided to make a second call, this time speaking English.
Goshers made the second call with a different number and to his surprise, the receptionist informed him that there are a number of rooms available.

I called her again in 30 mins with a new number but spoke in English and she got me a reservation. Amazing I still don't understand why she did that.

Boss, I know what you do. Go to the hotel and meet the management. After everything, let them know what happened.

Please, let's not be quick to bash them. It could also be that within the time of his first call and second, someone had called to cancel their reservation. It happens
From Kwabenah Okore:
That is the mentality of all Africans thinking anyone that speaks English is important, intelligent it happened to me when I was in gh for holidays at a bank

Video of foreign students learning twi in class goes viral online
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that a video of foreign teenage students learning Twi in class caught the attention of many online.
The video sighted by YEN.com.gh on a Facebook page called Akan Phonie had a class teacher who seems to be of Ghanaian origin teaching students Twi.
The setting of the class, as well as the students, appeared non-Ghanaian, but the actual location of the students was not disclosed in the post.
