With roots in mining dating back to 1886 when gold was discovered, Johannesburg exploded from a dusty, crowded mining camp into the modern economic hub of South Africa. Joburg attraced hopefuls from other parts of Africa. Today, it is not uncommon to hear French, Portuguese, Swahili and countless other languages in addition to the 11 official languages of South Africa.
