Dinka is the language of the communities of the southern Sudan region of Africa.  Although there are dialect differences, the Dinka language is a common, uniting bond throughout the region which has about 3 million people.

As more members of the Dinka-speaking community arrive and settle in South Australia, the School of Languages is working to maintain the language heritage that they bring with them.
