Xitsonga, often abbreviated as Tsonga or referred to as Shangaan in English, is a vibrant language primarily spoken in the northeastern parts of South Africa. It holds the distinction of being the country's eighth most-spoken language, representing approximately 5% of the population. As per the 2011 national census, over three and a half million people proudly consider Xitsonga as their home language. The language's prevalence is particularly significant in areas such as Limpopo, where it enjoys widespread usage in regions like Giyani (92% speakers), Malamulele (94% speakers), and Tzaneen (45% speakers).

It is worth noting that Xitsonga holds a special place in Mpumalanga's Bushbuckridge, where it serves as the first language for an impressive 57% of the population, comprising over half a million South Africans. Additionally, across the nation, approximately one in twenty South Africans proudly claims Xitsonga as their first language, and in the City of Tshwane, it accounts for 8.4% of the population, as recorded in the 2011 census.
