Words by Maya Angelou
“Africa’s multilingualism and cultural diversity is an asset that must, at long last, be put to use.”
Why study Sub-Saharan African Languages?
✦ According to the 2011 US Census, 884,660 individuals aged five or older already speak a language originating in Africa.
✦ Americans would benefit from learning African languages since the US is the second biggest investor in African economies. Hence the commercial value of learning an African language is on the rise.
✦ Since 1970, the African immigrant population has been on a steady rise in the US. Knowledge of these languages would enhance US government service-delivery and encourage further economic growth to their native communities.
