Swahili, or Kiswahili, is the language of the Swahili people. It is the most widely-spoken Bantu language and one of the most important languages of the African continent. Swahili is a governmental language in Tanzania, Kenya, and Uganda. Interestingly, Swahili is the only African language to become a working language of the African Union and is the official language of the East African Community. Modern Swahili uses the Latin alphabet in writing. The name Swahili originates in the plural form of the Arabic word sāhil, sawāhil, which means “coasts”. Swahili’s grammar is based on concording classes. In the 20th century, interest in Swahili increased significantly. In present day, Swahili is taught and studied at almost all major universities and research centres in Germany, England, France, Italy, Belgium, Japan, China, the USA, and other countries.
