Twitter: https://twitter.com/PolyglotFiles With 11 official languages (you read that right), South Africa is one of the most linguistically diverse countries on Earth! From European languages to languages with click sounds to a language with a consonant inventory of 51 consonants (you read that one right too), cruising through different neighbourhoods is like visiting separate countries each with separate tongues. Add in tones, double negative adverbs, and languages merging with one another, and South Africa is one of the most linguistically dynamic countries around. Twitter: https://twitter.com/PolyglotFiles

The Language of Africa series highlights a number of languages spoken around the continent and explores the personal and cultural connections each language has for its speaker. These abbreviated clips are an excellent way of introducing the multiculturalism and linguistic diversity found throughout the continent and provide students with an opportunity to think about the way their use of a specific language(s) carries with it historical and cultural connotations as well. In this particular video, Professor Zoliswa Mali provides an example of the Zulu language. Zulu is one of the official languages of South Africa and is the most widely spoken home language there.
