Homework Help: Geography

Posted by mysterychicken on Saturday, November 14, 2009 at 3:49pm.

How do you think the existence of nearly 3000 ethnic groups and 800 languages affect life in countries south of the Sahara?

Sub-saharan Africa displays more diversity than anywhere in the world. This is more apparent in the number of languages spoken. The region speaks 1/3 of the world's total . Speakers of Bantu languages (part of the Niger-Congo family) are the majority in southern Africa. I think this cultural diversity affects life in the Sahara because there are so many different groups, and each one has its own traditions. This means that everyone leads a different lifestyle, even though they all live around the same place.
