South Africa Information

South Africa is officially called the ‘Republic of South Africa’. South Africa is a multi ethnic country with 11 official languages, a wide variety of cultures and religions.

The official languages are: Afrikaans, English, Ndebele, Northern Soto, South Sotho or Sesotho, Swazi, Tswana, Tsonga, Venda, Xhosa and Zulu.

Language Facts

Afrikaans is derived from Dutch and although the language evolved, over 90% of all vocabulary is of Dutch origin.

The Ndebele language is quite close to Zulu. Until the formation of the apartheid Ndebele, it was discouraged to speak the language publicly. Zulu was taught in school, so most Ndebele speakers preferred to speak Zulu. Today most Ndebele speakers prefer to speak Ndebele at home and to communicate with other Ndebele speakers.

North and South Sotho are Bantu languages and both related to each other.

Swazi is, along with English, an official language of Swaziland in South Africa.

Tswana is also the official language of Botswana, but most Tswana speakers live in South Africa. It is mainly spoken in Pretoria.

The Venda language is related to Shona, the official language of Zimbabwe. Venda uses the Latin alphabet with five additional letters with diacritics.

Xhosa is a tonal language with three additional letters that indicate different clicks.

It has been suggested to be made Tsonga also an official language of Zimbabwe according to the new constitution.

It is interesting to know that the Tsonga people came to South Africa long after most other African people, settling in the Limpopo River valley. Their spiritual beliefs are centered on a Supreme Being, as well as respect, reverence, and belief in the power of the ancestors. Tsonga is also called ‘Xitsonga’. It is found in Limpopo, Gauteng and Mpumalanga, as well as areas near the border of the country of Mozambique, southeastern Zimbabwe.

Zulu is the most widely spoken language of South Africa and by many also considered mutually intelligible with Xhosa.

Writing

All of the languages of South Africa use the Latin alphabet, many with additional letters and diacritics. Certain sounds are often spelled using a combination of letters, which either do not exist in Indo-European languages, or may be meant to distinguish the language somewhat.
