TRANSLATION! Sesotho Language

Sesotho is a Bantu language that is part of the Niger-Congo language family. It shares close linguistic ties with Setswana, Northern Sotho languages (Sesotho sa Leboa), and Silozi within the Sotho-Tswana language group. The term "Sesotho" has gained wider recognition in English since the 1980s, particularly in South Africa and Lesotho. Sesotho, sometimes referred to as Southern Sotho, is distinguished from Northern Sotho to clarify linguistic distinctions.
