|Native to||São Tomé and Príncipe|
Angolar Creole, also Ngola (Lungua N'golá), is a minority language of São Tomé and Príncipe, spoken in the southernmost towns of São Tomé Island and sparsely along the coast. It is a creole language, based partially on Portuguese with a heavy substrate of a dialect of Kimbundu (port. Quimbundo), a Bantu language from inland Angola, where a number of enslaved Africans were abducted from to this island.
According to their external history, the following three types of creole have been distinguished:
- plantation creoles,
- fort creoles,
- maroon creoles
Angolar is considered a maroon creole.
