The number of speakers is estimated to be in the region of 3 million. The language is taught in Swaziland and some South African schools in Mpumalanga and KaNgwane areas. Swazi is an official language of Swaziland, (along with English), and is also one of the eleven official languages of South Africa. Although the preferred term is Swati among native speakers, in English it is generally referred to as Swazi: this is taken from the Zulu name for the language, isiSwazi. Swazi is most closely related to the other Tugela Nguni language, Phuthi; but is also very close to the Zunda Nguni languages: Zulu, Southern Ndebele, Northern Ndebele, and Xhosa.
