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

The Southern Ndebele language isiNdebele or Nrebele in Southern Ndebele is an African language belonging to the Nguni group of Bantu languages and spoken by the amaNdebele, the Ndebele people of South Africa. There are two dialects of Southern Ndebele in South Africa

The first group of Southern Ndebele speakers are found in the Limpopo Province  of South Africa around the Towns of Mokopane  and Polokwane. Unfortunately, this language was never taken seriously, so it was never taught at school and neither did anyone sit down and compile a complete orthography. The language is sometimes mistakenly grouped under the Northern Sotho group of dialects. This language is becoming extinct. The new generation generally speaks Northern Sotho.
