Learn Lingala for beginners and advanced students

Lingala (pronounced “ling-ga-la”) is an important language in the Democratic Republic of Congo and the Republic of Congo, with millions of native speakers. There is also a growing Lingala-speaking community in European countries due to diasporic communities from Central Africa.

This language not only reflects communication, but is also a central part of Congolese culture and identity. Lingala has a wealth of proverbs, stories and songs that have been passed down through generations.

When you learn Lingala, you immerse yourself in a rich culture and build a deep connection to the heart of Central Africa.
