About Albanian

This app helps you learn Standard Albanian which is the national language of Albania. Standard Albanian is based on the Tosk dialect, spoken in the south of the country. It is different from the Gheg dialect of Albanian spoken in the north of the country and in neighbouring Kosovo. Standard Albanian includes influences from Latin, Turkish and Slavic languages such as Bulgarian.
