Help us to save the language Busuu!


As you know,  the name of our website comes from the language Busuu from Cameroon in Africa, spoken by only 8 people.

This language is declared by the UNESCO as “critically endangered”. So, we from had to do something in order to save this language from its extinction!

In summer 2010, we sent a film-crew to the remote village of Weh in the jungle of Cameroon to find the last 8 native speakers of Busuu and created a video clip together with them to promote their language.

The result was this video.

Do you want to learn Busuu? We have prepared a special learning unit in Busuu so you can learn some phrases of this nearly extinct language on!

This is probably the first piece of evidence of this language online so check out what a nearly extinct language from the jungle sounds like!

We have also created a Save Busuu Facebook fanpage, so please join it, invite your friends and support the Busuu language!
