Gambian languages

Below you’ll find resources to help with:

  • learning how to read and write Gambian languages (for people who speak these languages already)
  • learning Gambian languages as foreign/additional languages (for people who do not know these languages)
  • accessing print and digital materials in Gambian languages

Some of the resources might capture slightly different varieties from those currently spoken in The Gambia but still be of use (e.g. Senegalese urban Wolof). The languages have been grouped following the above classification of Gambian languages (taken from Juffermans 2015).
