Do they speak English in Madagascar?
  • Would English be enough to communicate in Madagascar? I am planning a stop in Madagascar during November 2011 coming out of India en route to South Africa, however, I do not speak French but English, Spanish and several Germanic languages. Obviously in hotels there will be some staff who can handle English amongst other languages. I would prefer to hear from local Madagascar people how common English usage may be in restaurants, shops or at transportation hubs.
  • Hi,
    I know it's too late but for the other person that are still planning to spend holidays in Madagascar....so be aware that in madagascar the first language spoken is Malagasy...then French....now many persons begin to learn English.

Howdy, Stranger!
