Ethiopia's population is highly diverse with different languages and racial groups. Most of its people speak a Semitic or Cushitic language which are both part of the Afroasiatic language family. The Oromo, Amhara, Somali and Tigrayans make up more than three-quarters (75%) of the population, but there are more than 80 different ethnic groups within Ethiopia. Some of these have as few as 10,000 members. English is the most widely spoken foreign language and is taught in all secondary schools. Amharic was the language of primary school instruction but has been replaced in many areas by local languages such as Afan Oromo, Somali and Tigrinya.
