Kituba is a widely used lingua franca in Central Africa. It is a creole language based on Kikongo, a family of closely related Bantu languages. It is an official language in Republic of the Congo and Democratic Republic of the Congo.

Kituba is not currently taught on the IU campus, but we do have access to archived materials. Access the Peace Corps Student Manual (French). Learn more about Kituba here.
