Language is a key aspect of culture. It is the way we communicate with one another, build relationships and create a sense of community. In Africa, there are over 2000 languages spoken across the continent. I can only speak 1 out of the many languages.

Moreover, being able to greet in different languages can be fun and can open multiple opportunities.
To achieve this objective, I leant from various blog posts and YouTube videos. I realized all the countries have more than a language. Hence, I focused on five of the most prominent languages spoken in the continent. Learning to pronounce the words was fun but a bit challenging. Here is a video of my learning outcome.
