Any recommended teaching materials, classes, online tutors, etc. Of course the best way is to travel to Ghana, but I am not able to at this point. That is definitely in my future plans though. I do listen to Ghanaian music, which has helped me pick up a few words. I don't know anyone from Ghana.

There is a free, online course through or associated with the state department, I believe. Don't recall the name of it, though. Then, there are online resources like this one:

I wish Rosetta Stone offered a Twi language course, but I don't think the demand is great enough for that at this time.

Also try to find Ghanaians online who are interested in teaching you or in conversation. You can do skype or phone but wait until you have mastered some of the basics.

One warning:

If you are learning Twi in preparation for a trip to Ghana, make sure that Twi is spoken where you are going. I studied Twi before I visited and arrived to find out that a different (very different) language was spoken where I was staying!!
