Swahili is a Bantu language and 5 million people use it as a first language.
However over 140 million people communicate in Swahili and it serves as a national language of three nations: Tanzania, Kenya, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
A significant part of Swahili is derived from Arabic. For example, the word ‘Swahili‘ means ‘coast’ and the word ‘safari’ means ‘to travel’ in Arabic.
