About Swahili

Swahili is a language spoken in East Africa. It is a Bantu language and is closely related to other Bantu languages. Swahili is the official language of Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda, and is also spoken in Comoros, Mozambique, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. In total, there are about 5 million speakers of Swahili.

Swahili is a language with a complex grammar and a large vocabulary. However, it is possible to learn Swahili without knowing any other Bantu languages. Swahili has many loanwords from Arabic, Portuguese, and English, which makes it a relatively easy language for speakers of those languages to learn.

The language originated in a socio-linguistic community of speakers of various Bantu languages inhabiting the East African coast. While the vast majority of Swahili vocabulary is derived from Bantu, Swahili has also been influenced by other languages, particularly Arabic, Persian, Portuguese, and English.
