Kinyarwanda is a Bantu language spoken with about 7 million speakers who live mainly in Rwanda, where it is the national language along with French and English, and also in the Democratic Republic of Congo and Uganda. Kinyarwanda is closley related to Kirundi, which is spoken in Burundi and Tanzania.

Kinyarwanda is not currently taught on the IU campus, but we do have access to archived materials. Learn more about Kinyarwanda here.
