Ethiopia has a diverse mix of ethnic and linguistic backgrounds. It is a country with more than 80 different ethnic groups each with its own language, culture, custom and tradition. One of the most significant areas of Ethiopian culture is its literature, which is represented predominantly by translations from ancient Greek and Hebrew religious texts into the ancient language Ge'ez, modern Amharic and Tigrigna languages. Ge'ez is one of the most ancient languages in the world and is still used today by the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church. The Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church has its own unique customs and traditions, which have been influenced by Judaism. The Tigrayans' history and culture is derived from the Aksumite Kingdom tradition and culture whereas the history and culture of the Amhara people is derived from the post Aksumite imperial reign of Menelik II and Haile Selassie.

With the experience and expertise that we could accomplish over a period of time in yester years prompted us to use new and innovative formulae in language learning. These formulae are ingrained into this course so that our learners would be in a position to construct the sentences on their own with swift and deftness.
It is not a product of the mill like the other Hadiyyisa learning courses available in the market. It is not based on the translation method that is usually followed in other courses! The assumed sentences between first person and second person in dialogue form are constructed first in English and then they are translated ad-verbatim into Hadiyyisa or any other language. And the learner cannot memorize those parrot words; nor can he/she visualize the same situation repeatedly in day-to day life.
Hence we have endeavored to discover logical language learning formulas with stipulated rules, examples, oral and written drills to express present, past, future, present continuous and past continuous actions as every individual might speak about these actions. These can be learned with ease and can be applied to several situations in an efficient manner. The whole course has been presented in the form of tables for utmost clarity.
This course is organised in to three major parts. Part 1 deals with deals with the contextual phrases, Part 2 deals with the structural phrases along with the grammatical formulas & rules and part 3 deals with the contextual vocabulary.
