Africa is a very large continent with too many languages to mention here. South Africa alone has 11 official languages and many more unofficial ones. English is spoken pretty much everywhere in Africa, with French being the second most popular language. The best thing to do would be to search for the languages spoken in a specific African country, since most African countries have more than one official language. Different countries in Africa have different official language.However English has become the most popular second language formost countries and this would therefore make English the mostpopular language. Basically if you can speak English, you can nowcommunicate anywhere in the world. there are alot, mwambi is commonI suggest Mwambi is a figment of the imagination.....a reasonable list would be Arabic, Swahili, Hausa, Berber, Oromo, Zulu, Somali, Yoruba, Igbo, Amharic, Shona, Bambara, Twi, Ibibio, Fula, Afrikaans Linaga, Chichewa, Xhosa, Kiraranda, Congo, Tigrinya, Gbe, Tshilba, Wolof, Gikuyu, More, Kirundi, Luhya, Sotho.

Although that is the case certain parts of Africa speak the samelanguages in different tribes and more than one country. In North Africa Arabic is the common native languagespoken in all the seven countries of that region and most of thecountries of that region have french as a official language there. In most of East Africa , Swahili is the the major languagespoken by most tribes there or that region, and fourcountries(Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, Democratic Republic of Congo) ofthat region have that native language as a official language(butthat is not the only native language spoken in that region). In other parts of Africa though like West, Central,& Southern Africa there is no common language spokenin all those regions or within those regions, especially in WestAfrica. The language spoken in one country of a specific region isdifferent from another country in that same region, besides nativelanguages there are other languages spoken like official languageslike English or french for example (although that's the case almostall Africans regardless of what part they are from speak more than2 languages from their country). In conclusion though there is no direct dominant language spoken inAfrica (like it is in South America where majority of the countriesspeak Spanish) but when it comes to official languages spoken inAfrican countries, well in general the most dominant officiallanguages that African children have to learn when young at schoolbesides their parents native language is either English, French,other or a combination.

You cannot simply say "African people" since Africa is a continentand contains many "people" of different tribes in many countries. In the majority of these countries, you can hear and understandEnglish, French, Portugese, Spanish, Arabic and literally hundredsof native, tribal languages and dialects. For instance, in the city of Accra, Ghana West Africa the officiallanguage of the country, English is spoken, but also Twi, Ga andFante, Ewe and a mix of two or all of those called Pidgin English. By most estimates, well over 1500 languages (UNESCO has estimatedaround two thousand) are spoken in Africa and double the number ofdialects. Most of those languages are spoken amongst small amountsof people, at a tribal level, which accounts for so many languages.Then there are the larger languages that are spoken across thecontinent by millions of people.
