IGBO LANGUAGE Igbo is a Native Language of the native people. Igbo is a national language of Nigeria.

There are approximately 20 million speakers that are mostly in Nigeria and are primarily of Igbo descent. It is a language written in the Latin script, which was introduced by British colonialists and there is over 20 Igbo dialects. Igbo language is used among people in Nigeria; it is one of the most major African Languages., although it is spoken predominantly in Biafra (former Eastern Nigeria), it is widely spoken in almost all the countries of this world by the Ìgbo Diaspora.. If you are an Ìgbo, it is important that you learn to speak, read, and write Ìgbo because the language of a people is their most important heritage on which the survival of their culture and their continued existence on earth as a people largely depend. Igbo vocabulary language is quite different because it had been said that Igbo had burrowed words from European languages, mainly English. Example loanwords include the Igbo word for blue-blu and operator -opareto. Igbo has an extremely limited number of adjectives—just eight: ukwu -big, nta –small, ojii -dark, oca –light, ohuru -new, ocye -old, oma -good, ojoo bad.
