Information about My little known Country.

My country, Cameroon is a country of central and western Africa. It is bordered by Nigeria to the west, Chad to the northeast, the Central African Republic to the east and Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, and the Republic of the Congo to the south. Cameroon’s coastline lies on the Bight of Bonny, part of the Gulf of Guinea and the Atlantic Ocean.

Both English and French are official languages due to the introduction of these languages during colonialism. A fifth of Cameroon’s population in the Northwest and Southwest regions speak English. The rest of the population speaks French. Cameroonian Pidgin English is the most common lingua franca, especially in the formerly British-administered territories. A mixture of English, French, and Pidgin called Camfranglais has been gaining popularity in urban centers.

The country is called “Africa in miniature” for its high diversity of climate, culture, and geography.
