Central African Republic

The main language is French with a dialect called Central African French. The form is very understood by the Francophone nation. There are a lot of indigenous languages also. Whilst French is the official language of Central African Republic, a very small portion of the country knows any more than a few words of it.

Sängö (also referred to as Sangro or Sangho) is the lingua franca and is spoken by most of the people in Central African Republic (some 2000 have it as a mother tongue whilst 80% of the country have it as a second language). To find out if someone speaks Sängö, simply say Balâo (which means Hello), if they respond back with Balâo mïngï then you have found yourself a sango speaker.

English is spoken by almost no one, even in the capital. (source: Wikitravel)
