Fanagalo was established as a lingua franca between speakers of various languages found in South Africa and was mainly used in mines throughout the country. It can be viewed as a pidgin and is basically simplified version of Zulu (and Xhosa) and related languages with adaptations of modern terms from English, Dutch and Afrikaans.

It is easy to learn this language, yet it is important to note that it is NOT an artificially-manufactured language.
