Between five to 15 million consider Swahili their mother tongue, but the total number of people who speak it have reached over 200 million by recent estimates.

Swahili arose as a language of trade along the east coast of Africa, and it remains a strong regional contender in this domain even in the present day.

In 2021, UNESCO designated the 7th of July as Kiswahili Language Day. Tanzania specifically requested the July 7 as it was on this day in 1954 that the ruling party of the nation recognized Swahili as a key contributor to its fight for independence.
The Swahili lexicon carries a strong Arabic influence, with as much as 35% of its vocabulary coming from the language. In fact, the oldest extant text in Swahili is written in Arabic script, dating back to 1711. Due to German colonial administration, which formalized the language on the institutional level, Swahili uses the Latin script today.
Unlike most African languages, Swahili isn’t tonal, which makes it easier to learn for English speakers. It is also easy to read, as all words are pronounced as they are written. One defining feature of the Swahili language is the propensity for metaphoric expression in the form of methali.
