Hi my name is Lynnette and I will be telling you facts about Africa ! How big is Africa ? The continent of Africa is nearly 12 million square miles. How big is it you wonder ? It’s big ! Africa can hold the land occupied by China,India,Europe,Argentina,New Zealand, and continental United states, with room to spare ! How many countries are there in Africa ? You’ve probably heard of some African countries like Egypt,Nigeria,and Kenya however Africa is divided into 40 different countries ! How many languages do African people speak ? As of 1993 African people spoke more than 800 languages,but only 10 or so of those languages are spoken by culture groups or more than a million people . In fact,most African languages are used by groups of fewer than a 100,000 people!
