Mother Tongue / Local Language

The 1995 Constitution of Uganda designates our nation a multilingual society where 65 indigenous languages are spoken.

Until recently when Kiswahili was declared the second official language, English has been the only official language of Uganda.  For this reason, English is taught at all levels of education to enable learners develop communication skills while at the same time being able to access information written in English.


Kiswahili is Uganda’s 2nd official language, therefore, teaching/learning Kiswahili in Uganda is an effort to implement a government

policy on language.
