    This is a very good portable dictionary at a good price and will serve the average person in Hausaland quite well My only complaint is that it doesn t list all of the verb forms that one will encounter with Hausa speakers, particularly the awa form, which is very common It took me a long time to comprehend why I couldn t find these verb forms in the dictionary, despite the fact they were used in everyday conversation.it would be great to see this on a Kindle version so that one can have this dictionary on an Apple or Android handset or tablet.

    I found this dictionary to have entries that were too short and clipped I repeatedly found the word that it gave me in the English Hausa section was unrecognized in Niger it does focus on Nigerian Hausa If you are looking for a English to Hausa dictionary I would recommendhttp www.

    This dictionary was used by my school and has served me well enough that I bought a second There is very little in the way of Hausa teaching materials and I feel lucky that someone has taken the time to produce a very good dictionary of a language where much of the other available material is old and incorrect If you re looking for a good dictionary on this less commonly taught language, then I would recommend this one.
