The Luganda language is part of the Niger-Congo branch of languages. Its native speakers, the Baganda people, live primarily in the Buganda region (Uganda), although there can be also found more Luganda speakers out the country. It is without any doubt the most spoken Ugandan language, following it as second languages Swahili and English. English is the main official language in Uganda.
The language developed during many years as a spoken language; however, its first written form arrived with the influence of the Arabic and European contact. The language was first written during the half nineteenth century, being the first grammar of the language published in 1882, as well as many other publications written by the missionaries. The standard Luganda orthography, Empandiika y´Oluganda Entongol, was implemented in 1947.
The language is used in instruction in several primary schools in Buganda.
Diopa, Kooki, Sese and Vuma.
