How much of the local language do you need for daily living? Are local language classes/tutors available and affordable?

All you really need is English though you will pick up Krio lingo and there are Krio lessons available. Other local languages include Mende, Temne, Fullah. - Sep 3, 2017
None, it helps to learn some Krio but English will get you to everywhere in the country. - Sep 9, 2014
