Languages Spoken in South Africa - IsiZulu

Infomation about the IsiZulu language, one of South Africa's 11 official languages brought to you by Conference Venues South Africa.

Zulu (isiZulu), is a language of the Zulu people with about 10 million speakers, the vast majority  of whom live in South Africa. Zulu is the most widely spoken home language in South Africa  as well as being understood by over 50% of the population. It became one of South Africa's 11 official languages in 1994 at the end of apartheid.

Zulu, like all indigenous Southern African languages, was an oral language until contact with missionaries from Europe, who documented the language using the Latin alphabet. The first written document in Zulu was a Bible translation that appeared in 1883.
