  • The Sotho language has traditional names for the months of the familiar Gregorian calendar. The names reflect a deep connection that the Sotho people traditionally have with the natural world and the importance of agriculture. Although the month names are often not used by the general public, they are regularly used in news broadcasts and other media and are more common than English imports. Additionally, the names of the seasons and the days of the week are regularly used by all speakers.
