What languages are spoken in Africa ?
The African continent is one of the geographies where language diversity is greatest. The majority of people living on the continent speak at least three languages. The first of these languages is the local languages that we can express as the native languages of citizens of continental countries. There are many local languages ranging from Bambara to Swahili, from Yoruba language to Zulu on the continent.
The second language on the continent is the languages that come to the fore as the language of commerce. Among them, the language of Swahili, spoken by about 100 million Africans, is the best known in the language of commerce. The South African Development Community, with 16 members, adopted the language of Sevahili as the fourth official language of the community after French, Portuguese and English.
