Sierra Leone – Sierra Leone’s official language is English, but the language Krio is spoken by most ethnic groups throughout the country. Sierra Leone is a primarily Islamic country, with about two thirds of the population practicing Islam. Another 20-30% is Christian. The first stake in Sierra Leone was created in December 2012. The country suffers from a low literacy rate because of a weak educational system. Because of this, few people read newspapers and most people listen to radio for news and entertainment. Palm wine and Gumbe music are both popular. Soccer is the country’s most popular sport; street games are popular, in addition to following the major leagues in Europe. Rice is eaten with most meals in Sierra Leone, and is often topped with different types of sauces made from vegetables or nuts. Fish and seafood are popular, as well as tropical fruits such as mangoes, pineapples, and oranges.
