BBC World Service: Speaking Your Language? Amharic, Tigrinya, Oromo, Plus Eight More New Language Services

From BBC World Service, Over To You

"By the end of next year the BBC World Service will be providing services for 40 different languages across the world. That is as of last week when it announced it will be launching a further 11 in Afaan Oromo, Amharic, Gujarati, Igbo, Korean, Marathi, Pidgin, Punjabi, Telugu, Tigrinya, and Yoruba. Programme director of World 2020, Adrian Van-Klaveren, anwers listeners' questions on the move and not everyone is happy."

Providing credible information from reliable sources on the ground, not a projection of 'soft power' approach, or the spreading of British influence abroad; editorial independence and control.  

Some useful Amharic words
