Lingala is a Bantu language used by 70 million speakers world-wide and primarily spoken in The Democratic Republic of the Congo, The Republic of the Congo, Angola and the Central African Republic. The goal for this class is to share with you some basic phrases, greetings, expressions, numbers, and colors. I will also share with you some facts related to the culture and history of The Congo.
