About Swahili language

While the exact number of Swahili speakers remains controversial, experts estimate that the number of people who speak Swahili worldwide is between 100 and 150 million. Swahili language is the official language of Tanzania, Kenya, Rwanda, and Uganda. It is also a common language spoken in several African countries and widely spoken in the Congo and Comoros. A smaller number of Swahili speakers can be found in Burundi, Rwanda, northern Zambia, Malawi, and Mozambique. Despite its widespread use, relatively few people speak Swahili as a first language, but a significant proportion speaks Swahili as a second language.

Language Characteristics

What’s special about this language?

Africa has thousands of languages, mostly tribal languages spoken by a small number of people. Swahili, closely related to many of the tribal languages spoken in East Africa, is spoken widely even among people who aren’t highly educated. This is why it is among the most common languages in Africa, especially in East African countries.

The Swahili language belongs to the Bantu branch of the Niger-Congo language family. It is strongly influenced by the Arabic language, in which about 30% of the Swahili vocabulary is borrowed from Arabic.

Swahili has around 15 main dialects, but the 3 main dialects are KiUnguja (spoken in Zanzibar and mainland Tanzania); kiMvita (spoken in Mombasa and parts of Kenya); and kiAmu (spoken on Lamu Island and parts of the coast).
