African French (French: francais africain) is the generic name of the varieties of a French language spoken by an estimated 120 million people in Africa spread across 24 francophone countries. This includes those who speak French as a first or second language in these 31 francophone African countries, but it does not include French speakers living in non-francophone African countries. Africa is thus the continent with the most French speakers in the world. French arrived in Africa as a colonial language; these African French speakers are now a large part of the Francophonie. In each of the francophone African countries, French is spoken with local specificities in terms of pronunciation and vocabulary.
In Africa, French is often spoken alongside indigenous languages, but in a number of urban areas (in particular in Central Africa and in the ports located on the Gulf of Guinea) it has become the first language. In some countries. it is the first language among some classes of the population, such as in Tunisia, Morocco, Mauritania and Algeria, where French is a first language among the upper classes but only a second language among the general population.
There are many different varieties of African French, but they can be broadly grouped into four categories as per the location of the speakers. All the African French varieties differ from standard French both in terms of pronunciation and vocabulary, but the formal African French used in education, media and legal documents are based on standard French vocabulary. African French has become a local language with its own pronunciation and some loan words borrowed from the local language of the region.
