Guarani Indian Language (Avañe'e)
Guarani is a language of the Tupi-Guarani language family.
It is one of the major languages of South America, spoken by nearly five million people in Paraguay, Bolivia, Brazil and Argentina.
In fact, more than two-thirds of the population of Paraguay are speakers of Guarani, most of whom are fully bilingual in Guarani and Spanish.
There are significant differences between Paraguayan Guarani and the Guarani dialects spoken in other regions, and some linguists consider
them separate languages.
