French is the official language of France as well as the lingua franca among ethnic groupings. Apart from commercial offices and large banks in the city, almost little English is spoken across the nation.
With the Ewe people occupying the southern half of the nation, Ewe is by far the most commonly spoken native language. In the Aneho region, you may also come across the related Mina language. The northern language, Kabiyè, is the most widely spoken.
