Ian / Nokia Conversations
MADAGASCAR - Manao ahoana! That’s “Hello!” and “How are you” in Malagasy, which is the eighty-seventh and latest language to be added to Nokia’s Series 40 language library. Malagasy is the official language of Madagascar (the big island off the south east coast of Africa), and it’s also spoken in Réunion, Mayotte and the Comoros. Altogether, there are over 17 million speakers of Malagasy.
