Sotho People and Language
The Sotho people are a Bantu ethnic group whose ancestors have lived in southern Africa since around the fifth century. The Sotho nation emerged from the accomplished diplomacy of Moshoeshoe I who gathered together clans of Sotho–Tswana origin that had dispersed across southern Africa in the early 19th century. Most Sotho people live in South Africa, as the area of the Orange Free State was originally part of Moshoeshoe's nation, modern-day Lesotho.
The language of the Sotho people may be referred to as Sesotho or "Southern Sotho" to differentiate it from Pedi. Sotho is the first language of 85% of Lesotho population. Nowadays Lesotho has one of Africa’s highest literacy rates with 59% of the adult population being literate in the first place.
The Sotho language is videly used in a range of educational settings both as a subject of study and as a medium of instruction. It is applied in its spoken and written forms in all the spheres of education from pre schooling to doctoral studies. It is important to mention, that most newspapers in Lesotho are written either mainly in Sesotho or in both Sesotho and English.
