Lingala, sometimes called Ngala, is a Bantu language spoken mainly in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and in the Republic of the Congo. It is also spoken in Angola and the Central African Republic.
Lingala developed as a language used mostly for trade, and it’s thought that it originated from Bobangi, a language that has historically functioned as a trade language along the Congo River.
The Congolese are extremely friendly. They commonly stop to greet friends and even strangers on the street, and their warmth spills out of their language in colorful bursts. For example, in the morning, a Lingala native speaker would greet someone by asking, “Hello, is that you?” (Mbote, Yo wana?), or “Are you awake?” (Olamuki?)!
