The countries ranked are considered non-native English speakers, and the data is based on assessments of 2.1 million adults from 111 countries. They are further divided into five proficiency levels: very high, high, moderate, low, and very low.

South Africa shines as an African high-level English speaker, joining top-tier countries such as the Netherlands, Singapore, Austria, Norway, and Denmark.

However, some countries fall into the very low group. These countries have a distinct linguistic environment in which English is not frequently spoken or understood.

The following are Africa’s ten least-skilled English-speaking countries:
