Ghana is a small West African country. Paragraph § 1.1.1 discussed the geography of the country and § 1.1.2 will discus the tropical climate of Ghana
The Republic of Ghana (formerly the Gold Coast) lays on the gulf of Guinea on the western coast of tropical Africa only a few degrees north of the Equator. Ghana extends for a maximum of 672 km from north to south and for 536km east to west. It is bordered to the west by Côte d’Ivoire, to the north by Burkina Faso, to the east by Togo and the
south by the Atlantic Ocean. Ghana is not a large country by African standards; it has a total land area of 238.537kmE (Briggs, 2004).
Ghana is divided into ten administrative regions; Greater Accra, Eastern, Western, Central, Volta, Brong Ahafo, Ashanti, Northern, Upper East & Upper West. English is the official national language, and it is widely spoken as a result of the country’s long links with Britain and an unusual high standard of education from colonial times to the present
day. A total of at least 75 African languages and dialects are spoken in Ghana (Briggs, 2004).
