Myanmar is a country of great ethnic diversity. The Burmans, who form the largest group, account for more than half of the population. Many indigenous languages—as distinct from mere dialects—are spoken in Myanmar. The official language is Burmese, spoken by the people of the plains and, as a second language, by most people of the hills.
