Kinyarwanda, also know as Rwanda, is a Bantu language mainly spoken in Rwanda, where it is the national language along with French and English (with Kinyarwanda being the most widely used) , as well as in the Democratic Republic of Congo and Uganda.

Rwanda is well known as a tourist spot. Located in the Great Lakes Region of Central Africa, it’s often called “the country of a thousand hills” or the land “the land of perpetual springs.” More commonly, many of us know it as the home of the endangered species of

“Mountain Gorillas”.  For anyone visiting this beautiful, troubled country, learning some basics of Kinyarwanda is a must as most of the locals speak no other language.
