Thanks, Abdalla, this is interesting. When you state "There are many Hausa Diaspora who could not really read and write in Hausa, but they claim that as a result of being in the group, and being more or less forced to read in Hausa, they have now started gaining some skills in writing in Hausa language!" ... I wonder if there might be a need or interest in a webpage or site that addresses reading Hausa for Hausaphones who never studied their first language. Maybe a little like Russell Schuh's Hausa language site but geared to the increasing numbers of speakers of Hausa who are getting online. Such a web presentation could also have features on interesting proverbs, turns of phrase, words, or other features of the language. Thinking here of something analogous to a regular feature I hear on RFI exploring particular words and locutions in French, but this would also have the aspect of illustrating use of the written language on the internet.
