BBC Launches 11 new language services

The BBC World Service  has announced that it will launch 11 new language services as part of its biggest expansion “since the 1940s.”

The expansion is a result of the funding boost announced by the UK government last year.

The new languages will be Afaan Oromo, Amharic, Gujarati, Igbo, Korean, Marathi, Pidgin, Punjabi, Telugu, Tigrinya, and Yoruba.

The first new services are expected to launch in 2017.
