Angolar, also Ngola (called Lungua N'golá) is minority language of São Tomé and Príncipe, spoken in the southernmost towns of São Tomé island and sparsely along the coast. It is a creole language, based partially on Portuguese with a heavy substrate of a dialect of Umbundo, a Bantu language from inland Angola, where a number of black slaves were taken to this island. Angolan residents and tourists speaking Portuguese and Umbundo are surprised when they hear this Creole which is almost similar to their dialect.
