About Language Academy

Kikongo or Kongo is a Bantu language spoken by the Kongos (Bakongo in Kikongo) living in Angola (in the north of the country and the enclave of Cabinda), in the Democratic Republic of Congo (in the provinces of Central Kongo and Kinshasa), in the Republic of Congo (in the south-west as far as Brazzaville), and in southern Gabon.

Many of the African slaves transported in the Atlantic slave trade spoke Kikongo, and its influence can be found in many Creole languages, such as Palenquero, Habla Congolese, Gullah, Saramaka, and Haitian Creole (with words such as simbi, makaya, etc.).
