Tanzania is a country with a rich linguistic diversity, and it is estimated that more than 120 languages are spoken there. Some of the most widely spoken indigenous languages in Tanzania include Swahili (also known as Kiswahili), which is the national language and one of the official languages, and other Bantu languages such as Sukuma, Nyamwezi, and Chaga.
English, which is also an official language in Tanzania, is primarily used in official government business, education, and commerce. It is also spoken by a smaller percentage of the population as a second language or as a language of wider communication.
In addition to these languages, there are also various other minority languages spoken in Tanzania, including Cushitic languages such as Somali and Rendille, and Nilotic languages such as Maasai and Datooga. Tanzania’s linguistic diversity reflects the country’s rich cultural heritage and the influences of its history and geography.
