Kinyarwanda is the chief spoken language in Rwanda. It is classified as a Bantu dialect. It is somewhat close to the Kirundi language spoken in the neighboring country, Burundi. Unfortunately, there is little or no resource material for English language speakers to use to learn Kinyarwanda. French language speakers will have more luck, as there are a few books about Kinyarwanda (language and grammar) in French.
